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

We need to raise approximately $400 to treat children like Desalegn. When you give a gift through Desalegn'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 Desalegn. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I was so sad at first. I did not know if he is going to have a normal feet or not, but after meting the physiotherapist I learned that my baby has a hope to have a normal life," Dildil, Desalegn’s father, said.

Desalegn and his parents came to CURE Hospital seeking help for Desalegn’s clubfoot. He is their second son and he has an older brother. Desalegn’s mother, Kidist, stays home with the kids, and his father is a mechanic. The family heared about CURE through the medical center where they gave birth at, and they came to the hospital. They never heard or saw a person with a clubfoot and it was a shock for them. Now they are thankful to have found a place that would heal their son and give them hope. Please join us welcoming the family while they start their healing journey!
