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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"If I got healed and walk without my stick, I want to start school!" Proclaims Kasib.

Kasib came to the CURE Ethiopia hospital with his brother and uncle seeking help for his legs problem. He has had this problems since birth and this is the first hospital he ever visited. “His parents could not afford to take him to any hospital sooner, that’s why we waited this long”. Says Jemal, Kasib’s uncle. A physician saw Kasib in his village and told the the family about the CURE hospital and they brought him here. Kasib is not in school yet because it is far and it is hard for him to walk long distance with his stick, for now he is studying Quran in the mosque. Kasib is the sixth child for his parents, he has three sisters and four brothers! Please join us welcoming Kasib while he starts his healing journey!
