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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Bereket's Story

“We have been through a lot, I just hope this is the place that my son will be healed,” says Alemu, Bereket’s father.

Bereket is a sweet little guy, he is the third child for his parents and he has two older sisters. He comes to the CURE hospital seeking help for his burn contractures. A year ago, Bereket was at home with his sisters and the house accidentally caught on fire and his siblings were able to leave the house without being hurt. When his mother returned home she heard that her baby was still inside and she ran in to save him. She did save him and burned herself a bit in the process. Both of them went to a hospital in their village and got treatment for their wounds there. His mother is healthy and she does not need any medical care, it is just Bereket who needs healing. Throughout the time that his wounds were healing, Bereket’s wrist started to fuse to his arm. Because his left eye was damaged in the accident he only uses his right eye to see. Bereket’s father Alemu started asking around for another hospital to help his son and he finally heard about Mother Teresa Home and brought Bereket there. The home brought him to CURE hospital and he has started his treatment here. Join us welcoming this little boy and his family while they start their journey to healing!
