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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“When I grow up, I want to be a teacher,” proclaims Abush. “I want to teach other children!” he continues.

Abush comes from a town south of the capital and is the first born of four children for his parents. He was accompanied by his uncle, Hussen, since his father is a day laborer at a town far away. Sefia, his mother, is a housewife. Abush and his family heard about CURE at their local church. He has completed the second grade but being teased at school constantly makes it hard for Abush to be confident. We hope his healing here will give him the confidence and normalcy he seeks. We are praying for his serial casting to go well and we are very excited to follow Abush throughout his process!
