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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I want her to be healed, so that she could use her hand,” says Fatuma, Jenetia’s mother.

Abdi and Fatuma, Jenetia’s parents, brought her to our mobile clinic seeking help for her hand problem. A month ago Jenetia was inside the house playing and her mom Fatuma was outside when Jenetia became curious about and reached out to touch the cooking fire. She burned her hand and they took her to a clinic right away where she received treatment. She will be coming to CURE because she still needs a release and skin grafting to complete the healing. Fatuma is an only child for her parents and they are thankful to have found a place that would help treat their little girl. Please join us welcoming Jenetia and her family as they begin their journey to healing!
