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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“When I grow up I want to be an engineer, so that I could build houses,” proclaims Israel.

Israel is a sweet eight year old boy that we met at clinic last week in the northern part of Ethiopia. He is the first born child for his parents and has a younger sister. Israel came to our clinic with his father Abebe, seeking treatment for his clubfoot. His father Abebe told us, "When he was a baby everything was fine and we did not know it would get this bad, but through time it has gotten worse and walking become difficult for him. This is not the only reason why we are here, he insists on not going to school unless he gets healing.” He continued, “He comes home being sad and tells us all the children in school are making fun of him and he doesn’t want to continue school like that.” Israel will start his healing soon and be able to go back to school in no time. Join us welcoming this young boy and his family!
