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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Jhonny's Story

"I don’t like how my leg looks like right now, I want them to be straight and sometime it hurts to walk too and I want that to stop too,” Jhonny told us candidly.

We meet Jhonny and his father Zeleke in the southern part of Ethiopia as they came to one of our mobile clinics. Two years ago, Jhonny fell and hurt his leg, he went to a traditional healer right away but it did not heal his leg and he is in need of treatment. Jhonny is in the fifth grade and he told us, “I want to be a doctor in the future so that I could help people.” Jhonny is the youngest for his family and he has two older brothers, his father is a veterinarian and his mother stays home taking care of the children. “He has been asking me to take him to a hospital for quite some time but I was in school and I could not bring him to any medical centers,” says Zeleke and he continues, “I’m glad we are finally in a hospital and Jhonny has started his treatment!” Join us welcoming the family while Jhonny starts his healing journey!
