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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Yeabsera's Story

“If I walk long distances, it hurts and I get so tired,” says Yeabsira and continues, “I was in the first grade but I could not continue school because of my leg. If I get healed and walk without pain, I want to go back to school.”

“If I walk long distances, it hurts and I get so tired,” says Yeabsira and continues, “I was in the first grade but I could not continue school because of my leg. If I get healed and walk without pain, I want to go back to school.”

Yeabsera comes from a big family - she has nine siblings - five brothers and three sisters. Her parents are farmers and she came to CURE Ethiopia with her older sister, Kebebush. Until the age of three, Yeabsera was running around and walking perfectly, but when she was three years old, she got sick and had an operation on her left leg. She did not follow-up with her treatment and her leg got worse and it made walking very hard for her. A couple of years back, Kebebush took her to a hospital in their city and the hospital sent them to us here at CURE Ethiopia. “I don’t play any games that has running, most of the time I sit with my friends and play different kinds of games that doesn’t involve running,” says Yeabsira. Please join us welcoming her while she starts her healing journey!
