What am I giving to?

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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

“I never went to school, but I really want to start and become a teacher someday!” shares Zemanesh.

Zemanesh is a friendly young girl who has come to CURE seeking help for her burn contracture. Seven years ago, Zemanesh was at home playing with her sisters when she accidentally fell on a fire and burned her leg. She did not go to a hospital right away, instead, she went to a traditional healer for treatment. The wound healed at the time, but her knee contracted and has made walking very difficult for her. Zemanesh's father, Azmach, told us that a couple of months back he started going to a church in his village and heard about CURE hospital from the sisters there and he brought Zemanesh to our hospital. Zemanesh has five siblings, three sisters and two brothers. To provide for the family, Azmach works for people gathering wood and fetching water and her mother stays home with the kids. Zemanesh helps around the house in every way she can and she is looking forward to being healed and starting school soon. Please join us in welcoming Zemanesh and helping this sweet child's dreams of becoming a teacher come true!
