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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Anduelem came with his mother to CURE for help. Since birth, he has had growth problems that have left him with severe leg contractures and clubfeet. His mother says his leg wasn’t like it is now, but it was bent at a sharper angle at the knee. When he was little they took him ot a hospital near their home. The hospital was able to straighten his legs a little bit, leaving him with both legs locked at an approximate 80 degree angle. Because of his legs, Anduelem cannot walk. He crawls along on his knees, and sometimes uses his hands to keep his balance also.

Anduelem’s parents had a big disagreement over how to care for their disabled son. His father did not want him to go to school or be involved, and his mother fought for him to get an education. His parents divorced through this disagreement, and his mother left with him, determined for him to get to school. Anduelem lives with his mother on a farm, 2 days travel from Addis Ababa. Fortunately, Anduelem has not been bullied for his condition, and does extremely well in school. A very intelligent boy, he ranks in the 95th percentile of students, and his mother carries him to and from school every day.

Andualem come back for the 10th year anniversary of the CURE Ethiopia hospital! While he was at the hospital he saw Dr. Mesfin and told him he has had a little discomfort if he walks for long distances, but his X-ray was clear and he doesn't have any problems with his bones, so he won't need any surgical treatment for now. We will see him again in a couple of months at one of our mobile clinics to check in with him again! Photo of Andualem

Anduelem is doing well today! His mother is ever grateful for CURE and thanks us all profusely when we walk around the ward. He had a cast change today, and Dr Tim is very pleased with his progress. His legs have both reached what we hope will be a good degree, allowing him to stand and take his first steps ever, with us when the cast comes off! http://bit.ly/13YbTvI Photo of Andualem
