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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Kejelcha is a quiet and only child for his parents and they have come to CURE from south of the capital. Kejelcha was in the first grade when his father decided he needed to stop attending school and find a cure and be treated for his deformity. He was referred to us by his local hospital. His deformity, Coxabara, is congenital and rare. Even though he’s not enrolled in school this year, Kejelcha still enjoys going to campus to play football with his friends! We hope one day he can once again return to school! Please join us in praying for Kejelcha's healing!
