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

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Diso. When you give a gift through Diso'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 Diso. 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 a doctor!” Diso tells us.

Diso has had clubfoot on both feet since birth and this is her first time coming to a hospital for treatment. Her parents heard about Cheshire homes and took her to the organization to help navigate living with a disability. The organization brought her to CURE Ethiopia hospital and she has started her treatment here. “I was in school and I was in grade four, but I could not continue my school because it is far from my house and it hurts my feet to walk long distance.” explains Diso and she continued, “It has been more than a year since I stopped school and I want to be healed and continue my school.” Diso has two sisters and both of her parents are farmers. Diso told us that kids at her school back home make fun of her foot and her way of walking and that always makes her very sad. Join us welcoming Diso and we invite you to be part of her life changing journey!

Diso is walking well with her braces! She had been using crutches to assist her, but Dr. Mesfin told her not to use them anymore. He said she needs to walk around without them in order to develop her muscles and teach her body how to support herself. We will see her again in three months to check on the progress she is making. Keep on praying for her! Photo of Diso

We found Diso with some of her friends from the partner organization where she has been staying. She came back for her check up and she is doing very well! There's been a little hiccup with her AFO (the brace for her foot). She did have have the fitting like she was supposed to, but getting the brace made has been taking a little longer than we all expected. We're putting a little pressure behind her order and she's scheduled to have a fitting - aka when she tests it out - in two week's time. Slow but sure progress! Photo of Diso
