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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Emebet is a 5th grader who dreams of becoming a doctor someday. Unfortunately, she had to stop school temporarily because walking to school become very difficult for her. CURE is not her first hospital that she has visited and she’s even had an operation on her left leg, but she still needs a couple of more operations on both legs so that they will be straight. Kids at her school bully her because of her condition, so she is really looking forward to being healed and walking to school and playing with her friends as normal kids do. Emebet lives with both of her parents and her three brothers. Her parents are farmers and they are thankful to have found a place that could help get Emebet started on her journey to healing. Please join us in praying for that!

Emebet's surgery went well! She had a rod placed inside her leg to help the bone straighten out as it grows. Next time it will be the same right leg but below the knee. We immediately saw a change when Dr. Tim straightened out the top part of her leg! We're excited to see more healing! Please pray with us for that! Photo of Emebet

Emebet is antsy to have her procedure so she's been pacing the ward until it's time! This morning's brisk weather was peaceful for her though. She is having her right leg worked on today, but only the bones above her knee because operating on the whole leg would be too much to endure at once. Join us in praying for her to recovery quickly!
