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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I want to go to school like my older brother and sister,” says Wubrist.

Wubrist came to CURE Ethiopia with her father Fasil seeking help for the swelling in her knee. “We don’t know how it happened but a year ago she had some pain on her left knee and it has gotten worse through time,” says Fasil. Her family took her to a hospital in their village but they were not able to give her the treatment that she needed. Wubrist recieved some medication for the time being and after was referred to CURE Ethiopia. Wubrist has not started school yet, in her village, kids start school at the age of seven because the school is too far from their home and they have to be a bit bigger and older to walk to school. She has three siblings, two sisters and one brother. Both of her parents are farmers and they are thankful to have found a place that would give them all the help Wubrist needs to heal. Join us welcoming this beautiful child while she starts her healing journey!

Today she is having an operation on her knee to help her straighten it.
