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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"I want to go back to school," proclaims Kedija.

Kedija is a sweet girl! She came to CURE with her father Bihon and her older sister Emebet. They came to the hospital seeking help for her hip and arm problem. They traveled for 336Km by bus and they are happy to have found a place that would give them all the help they need. A a couple of years back Kedija fell and hurt her arm but she did not went to any medical center. A year ago she fell and hurt her hip at that moment Bihon decided to seek for medical care because similar things were happening to Kedija’s older sister Emebet. Kedija’s schools is to far for her to walk and she was forced to stop it. It had been a year since she stooped school and she was in grade two. Including Emebet, Kedija has five siblings, one brother and four sisters. Please join us welcoming this beautiful girl!
