What am I giving to?

CURE in Ethiopia

The picture above is of CURE 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 Almaz. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $2000 for Almaz and kids like her. When you give a gift through Almaz'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 Almaz. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I like to play house with my friends at school,” Almaz tells us.

Almaz is a shy girl from the rural area of Northwest Ethiopia. Almaz is the youngest in her family but she doesn’t live with her parents since they couldn’t care for her. She comes from a family of farmers. Almaz is a fourth grade student but her relatives who care for her now didn’t believe she’s had fourth grade level education and enrolled her into the second grade. We’re glad that she’s made it to our Mobile Clinic in Bahir Dar and we look forward to correcting her foot disability soon!
