What am I giving to?

The CURE Hospital in Ethiopia

The picture above is of the CURE hospital in Ethiopia. The doctors, nurses, technicians, cooks, cleaners, and administrators of CURE Ethiopia 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 Molalegne. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $2000 for every procedure we provide Molalegne and kids like him. When you give a gift through Molalegne's CUREkids profile, your contribution is designated to an exclusive country fund for CURE's work in Ethiopia, and those funds can only be used for operational expenses to treat patients in 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 Molalegne. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I used to walk, run, and play,” says Molalegne.

Molalegne is from the villages north of Addis Ababa. He comes from a family of farmers. His parents have four children and he is the second. Molalegne was referred to Black Lion Hospital by a clinic in Debre Markos and had physical therapy there for a joint condition in his knee. Black Lion referred him to CURE and we called to see him for the Bahir Dar Mobile clinic. He is not in school because walking is too difficult. It has been two years since this began. “I like to play soccer. I still play, but with a stick to support me because I can’t run anymore,” he explains. Please join us in praying for Molalegne's healing, we want to see him back at school and on the soccer field with no more pain!
