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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Firdos's Story

“She was just one when she burned her hand and legs, all of her leg burns are healed now but I could not afford to follow up with her treatment to heal her hand,” explains Rahmet, Firdos’s mother and she continued, “I’m just so happy I have found a place that would help me heal my daughter.”

Firdos is a sweet eight year old girl who loves running around and playing. When she was just a year old both of her legs and left hand caught on fire in an accident. She did not get treatment right away and her left hand still needs a contracture release. It took Firdos and her mother Rahmet a full day to get to the CURE Ethiopia hospital and we are happy they are now here! They heard about CURE Ethiopia from a previous patient of ours and came straight here. She has not started school yet but she is looking forward to starting as soon as she finishes her treatment. She has three brothers and one sister, her mother stays at home with the children and her father is a daily laborer. Join us in welcoming Firdos as she starts her healing journey!
