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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Sifen and her grandmother came on a 5 hour bus journey to get to CURE from Ambo. He lives with his grandmother because his mother left him when she saw his clubfoot, and since then his grandmother has been taking care of him by selling goods at the markets. In the last year he visited another hospital in Addis Ababa and got some casts for a couple of months, as therapy, but it didn’t straighten his foot so then they tried coming here.
