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

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Ismail. When you give a gift through Ismail'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 Ismail. 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 be a doctor and help sick kids," Ismail tells us.

Ismail is a seventh grader whom we met at one of our mobile clinics. He came with his older brother Temam, seeking help for a snake bite that caused his ankle to contract a couple of years back. He went to a hospital at the time of the bite but he still needs more treatment to heal his ankle. His family heard about CURE Ethiopia from a previous patient of ours. Ismail’s parents are farmers and he has three sisters and three brothers. Join us in welcoming Ismail while he starts his healing journey!
