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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“He doesn’t have any pain, he walks, runs well and enjoys it!” proclaims Getaye, Befkade’s father, as he smiles!

Befkade comes from north of the capital. He is the first born of three for Getaye, who is a farmer. Getaye's other two children are girls. Befkade was born with his clubfoot. He is in the sixth grade and is initially quiet when you first meet him, but we’re sure he’ll warm up to us over time! A local physician in their town referred Befkade’s family to CURE a couple of months ago. We're so thankful that they've made their way here and we're excited to start his treatment and get him off to a new start with a straightened foot! Join us in praying him through the process!
