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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"It always hurts to walk and it is very uncomfortable too, I just want the pain to stop,” said Deribew.

Deribew is an 8th grader who loves school so much that he even moved to another city, leaving his parents, so that he could be educated. He was in grade two when he moved to live with his uncle because he was about to stop school to help his parents with the farm work. This is the first hospital he has been to for his leg problem and he is so happy to have gotten to a place that would help him. Deribew also told us, “I want to be a doctor someday so that I can help people in need and heal them.” We are so glad to meet Deribew and start this healing journey with him!
