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

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Dersolegn. When you give a gift through Dersolegn'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 Dersolegn. 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 soccer!” exclaims Dersolegn.

Dersolegn comes from a family of farmers and is the last born child for his late father, Zerihun. Dersolegn has never been to school. “Children mock and insult me,” he explains. He is ashamed of his disability. We pray that when he receives his surgery and heals he will regain his confidence and be ready to begin school again! Please join us in his healing journey!
