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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Medina's Story

“Every time when I think about her, it makes me very sad. I had to carry her, to move her around and we both fell sometimes and it is very hard for me," says Zeritu, Medina’s mother and she continues, "I have been through a lot and I just want her to be healed.”

Medina is a sweet girl! She is a second child for her family and she has one older sister. Medina came to CURE with her mother Zeritu seeking help for her bone condition. This is not their first hospital experience, Zeritu told us that she took her to different clinics and hospitals but they couldn't find the help they needed. The last hospital they went to told them about CURE and they came to us. Medina used to walk and play with her friends but three years ago her leg problem got worse, and she could not walk or play with her friends anymore. While she was still in grade one, she was forced to quit her school because of it. Medina also told us, “I want to go back to school and be a teacher someday.” Join us welcoming Medina and Zeritu while they start their healing journey!
