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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I love planes and I want to be a pilot when I grow up!” proclaims Tewodros

Tewodros has had his a clubfoot since birth and this is not his first time visiting a hospital. When he was a baby, his family found and started treatment for him but the hospital was far from their village and they could not afford the follow-up treatment which involved many long and expensive trips. For years they tried to make the best of the situation, but eventually it became too much. They once again started looking for help and the hospital they went to sent them here to us at CURE Ethiopia. Tewodros' family is grateful to have found a place that can give them all the help Tewodros needs. He is a second grader and loves school so much, “I love playing with my friends and my favorite game is playing soccer” Tewodrso tells us. He comes from a family of farmers and he is the youngest child. He has two brothers and three sisters. Join us in welcoming Tewodros while he starts his healing journey!
