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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I really want her to be healed and have straight legs so that she could go to school and be with kids her age,” says Dawod, Aliya’s father.

Aliya is a sweet little child! She comes from a family of farmers and she is the fifth child for her family. Aliya’s father Dawed told us he couldn’t send her to school because it is too far for her to walk and he is scared she might fall and hurt herself. Dawed heard about CURE Hospital from his oldest daughter and came to our hospital right away. He is so happy and grateful to have found a place that would help his daughter have a brighter future. Please join us in welcoming and supporting Aliya and her family while they start their healing journey.
