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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Rahmet's Story

“All of her siblings are in school and other children the same age as her has started school this year but because of her leg problems she could not” says Amina, Rahmets mother. She continues, “I want her to be healed and to go to school like the other children.”

Rahmet is a sweet little girl! She came to CURE Ethiopia with her mother seeking help for her knock knees. This isn't the first hospital Rahmet and Amina have sought help at. The hospital before us tried their best but ultimately didn't have the doctors and resources to deal with knock knees like Rahmet's. Thankfully, this hospital did know about us here at CURE Ethiopia and referred Rahmet to us! Rahmet comes from a rural area where there are mixed opinions on seeking medical care. Many believe hospitals are just a place where people go to die and criticized Amina for seeking help. Ultimately Amina was vindicated, “I'm so glad I brought her to a hospital because, now she is getting the help she needs”. Join us welcoming this sweet child as she starts her healing journey here with us at CURE Ethiopia!

Little Rahmet was a bit shy today. When we said hi, she was giggling and trying to hide her face from us. Her mom Amina was wheeling her around and playing with her. It's hard work keeping this young one entertained as she focused on her healing! Photo of Rahmet

Rahmet has had her surgery! It was a pretty straight forward, but intense surgery. The doctors essentially removed a wedge of her bone which gave them the space they needed to then "break" her leg straight. She was asleep and didn't feel a thing, but we can imagine, when she wakes up, she won't be a big fan of the bulky cast she now has on her left leg! Photo of Rahmet

Rahmet is an active girl! She was running around and playing in the ward before heading to the operation room. Today she is having a surgery on her left leg. Please keep her in your prayers, for a successful operation and for a speedy recovery! Photo of Rahmet
