CURE in Ethiopia

The picture above is of CURE in Ethiopia. Everyone who serves with CURE in Ethiopia, from medical professionals to office staff, are dedicated to providing the highest quality medical and spiritual care to people who, without CURE, couldn't find it and couldn't afford it, just like Meskel. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Meskel. When you give a gift through Meskel's CUREkids profile, your contribution will help us continue our work in countries like Ethiopia. Have more questions? Ask us.

Monthly Giving: Be a Hero!

When you partner with us monthly, we'll send you an email each month to introduce you to a different child who was helped because of your generosity. You can choose to follow their updates and send them get well messages. That means that each year, you're a part of helping 12 different children, beginning with Meskel. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Neither Meskel nor her family are sure what happened to cause her left foot to become deformed when she was 3 years old, but they do know it's about time for it to be healed. CURE Ethiopia is the first hospital they've visited for a solution. Meskel helps a lot around the house, and her parents are both farmers. Without help from CURE, they would not be able to afford the surgery needed for Meskel's healing. She has 2 sisters and 4 brothers. She also likes to play with her friends in the village.

Meskel has not experienced any bullying because of her condition, and she has not started school yet, because it's hard for her to get there. She can't wait to recover from this surgery at CURE, because she wants to start school to get her education so that she can someday become an Amharic teacher.

The operation she had is called a midfoot osteotomy and an ATL. midfoot osteotomy will straighten out and lengthen her foot, allowing her to have the full flexibility that she does not currently have, and the ATL will give flexibility to her ankle.

Meskel does not need a brace anymore! Her left foot is healed and she can wear a normal shoe now! Since she is done with the left foot, it is time for the right one, she will come back for an operation in six weeks and she will have a cavovarus correction on her right foot. Please keep her in your prayers! Photo of Meskel
