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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"We trust God! It took us three days to get here from the mountains," says Shegenbesh, Sosena's aunt.

Sosena comes from a town near mountains north of capital. She comes from a family of farmers and has four siblings, she is the youngest, and the only one in the family with a cleft lip. It took Sosena a day to get her aunt's town, and then two days for them to reach the capital together. "There is a friend of mine who's child had a bone issue that was treated here, so I knew where to bring her," continues, Shegenbesh. Sosena is in the fourth grade and her aunt tells us, "The kids tease her and it makes her feel down. They use mean words to describe her lip." Sosena enjoys playing with her friends and helping her family tend to the farm. "She will be very happy and her self confidence will be risen. Everything will be good once she is treated. God bless all of you and the donors!" adds Shegenbesh. Sosena will have her operation today, pray with us for a speedy recovery!
