What am I giving to?

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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Feven's Story

“I want to walk with out any support, bend my leg and most of all I want to stand without any support." - a simple wish from our aspiring surgeon, Feven.

Feven is an energetic girl, but her leg problem always gets in the way of her running around and playing with her friends. A couple of months back, she had an accident. Some heavy things fell on her and damaged her leg, so her parents took her to a medical center where she had an operation. But as a result, she still had to walk with crutches and really couldn't use her left leg. Her parents heard about CURE by word of mouth and brought their daughter to us, hoping to find more thorough healing for her leg problem.

Miss Feven is in the 5th grade and already dreams of becoming an orthopedic surgeon, so she can help kids who have similar problems like hers. She lives here in Addis Ababa with her parents and her little brother, and we're exciting to have this future medical student in the ward this week!
