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 Mahlet. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Mahlet. When you give a gift through Mahlet'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 Mahlet. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Mahlet is a sweet little girl who needs an operation for her left hip. Because her left hip is out of place and although it's not causing too much trouble at this time in her life, later it will be difficult for her to walk and most likely cause her pain.

When Mahlet started walking her parents noticed she's walking with difficulty. They took her to another hospital, but the surgery that she needs could not be provided there so she was sent to us. Her parents are so thankful to find CURE because it is a place where their daughter gets the treatment she needs.
