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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Nejat was quite wary of us when she first arrived, but she is a sweet little girl. She and her family live in Welo, and made the trip to Addis on the recommendation of relatives here in Shero Meda. They are just down the road from the hospital and they suggested Nejat come and get her leg checked out.

Nejat has a condition which leads her bone to grow very thin and frail. Her shin has not connected properly, leaving it floppy, and she is unable to walk. Unfortunately there is no proper 'fix' for this condition. Almost every procedure can have small effects but over time the bone may well give way again. Please pray for strength and healing of little Nejat's legs!
