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

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Yemane. When you give a gift through Yemane'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 Yemane. 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 be able to work alongside my father when I’m cured,” says Yemane.
Yemane comes from the northern part of the country. His father, Woldegebreil, sells garments at the local market to provide for the family. He is the second of six children for Woldegebriel. Yemane stopped attending school after the seventh grade because of pain from his deformity. It wasn’t right away that they noticed, but his knocked knees began to deform and cause pain in his knee joint. “I miss playing football to my full capacity,” continues Yemane. He still plays, but when he’s hit near his knees, it causes pain and he has to stop and rest. We’re glad to have him here, please join us in praying for a speedy recovery!
