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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

“I love school so much and I want to be an accountant when I grow-up”! proclaims Bezunesh.

Bezunesh has come to CURE Ethiopia seeking help for her burn contractures. She was burned when she was just three years old. She had been at home playing and tripped, pulling a burning lantern onto herself. The burning oil spilled all over her, badly burning both of her legs. Her right leg took the brunt of the fire. “We took her to a hospital at the time of the accident but the help she got didn’t help to heal her leg instead her right leg bent and healed that way”. Yerbe, Bezuneshe’s mother, shard with us. Bezunesh never visited any other hospital after that, but recently, the family heard that there might be help for her. They started asking around and eventually went to a hospital in another city. This hospital wasn't able to help but did refer them here to us at CURE Ethiopia.

Bezunesh is in the eighth grade now and enjoys learning. “I get so tired if I walk long distance and my school is a far from our home. I’m always tired after walking to school". Bezunesh, shared with us. We're excited to get to work on Bezunesh's leg and hopefully make it a little easier to get around and achieve her dream of becoming an accountant!
