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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Abubeker's Story

“I feel so sad seeing him not being able to go to school like his friends do, not walking like them and not running around and playing with them,” says Zayada, Abubeker’s mother.

“I feel so sad seeing him not being able to go to school like his friends do, not walking like them and not running around and playing with them,” says Zayada, Abubeker’s mother.

Abubeker is such a sweet little guy! He lives with his parents and he is an only child for them. The family noticed a problem when he was just nine months old, but they didn't take him to a hospital because they were afraid it would be expensive for them, which they couldn't afford. But a year ago, he fell and hurt the same leg, so they took him to a government hospital and thankfully that hospital sent them to CURE. Abubeker was in kindergarten, but after hurting his leg, he could not walk so he stopped school a year ago. Because of that, Zayada was forced to quit her job making and selling coffee to stay home to care for him. Now it is just Abubeker’s father, Musema, supporting the family as a daily laborer, but now it's our chance to support the family by giving their little boy a chance at walking and running free of disability!
