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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I always get jealous of people who can play soccer or any sports activity for that matter,” says Daniel, he continues “I am looking forward to being healed and playing soccer with my friends.”

Daniel is a friendly young boy! He came to CURE with his mother Bayush, seeking help for his leg problem. He lives in the north-western part of Ethiopia with his parents and three siblings, he has two brothers and one sister. Bayush told us that the family could not find healing for Daniel until a couple months back when they came across someone who knew about CURE. Daniel is in grade nine and he wants to be a doctor someday. Please join us welcoming Daniel!
