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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Zerabiruk is an energetic boy! When he is not at school he loves playing with his friends. His father makes clothes and his mother stays at home taking care of the kids.

His hand wasn’t always like this, but rather the growth started developing and becoming worse as he got older. Concerned, his parents took him to a hospital and they told them he needed a surgery, but they couldn’t afford his surgery so they brought him here. His parents are so thankful for CURE and the work that we do.

Zerabiruk was in a little pain today, i saw him in the morning getting some sunshine and i ask him why he is not running around because the first day he comes to CURE he told me that he loves the compound and he loves running around. But today he says his hand is hurting him and he might do it tomorrow. Please pray for his fast recovery so that he can run and play.
