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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Takele is a sweet little boy who has been walking with supportive braces in his shoes for two years. He had a surgery to release tendons in the backs of both his feet at CURE two years ago, but the condition has triggered again. This causes him to walk on his tiptoes because he cannot straighten his feet down to the floor properly.
He has not been going to school for the past few years. He plays with his 2 sisters and 2 brothers, and simply stays on his parents farm in Sebeta, an hour from Addis Ababa.
Takele is back at CURE now and because he is older, they need to do surgery on just his right foot first. He will begin attending school again when his parents approve and his treatment has finished… We look forward to seeing God work!
