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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Belise's Story

“We were so shocked and sad to see our first born with a cleft lip and palate”. Dawit, Belise’s father, explained before continuing, “but over time we came to accept that she is a gift from God and we could not do anything about it”.

“We were so shocked and sad to see our first born with a cleft lip and palate”. Dawit, Belise’s father, explained before continuing, “but over time we came to accept that she is a gift from God and we could not do anything about it”.

Little Belise comes to CURE Ethiopia with her father Dawit seeking help for her cleft lip and palate. She had originally come to us several months ago, but was too small to safely receive surgery. Her parents were educated on how to feed a child with a cleft lip and palate and they were sent home until she was large enough to receive surgery. That time has finally come and Belise has been admitted for surgery!

Belise lives with her farming parents and her younger sister. Her sister is a four months old and, like Belise, she also has a cleft lip and palate. She will start her treatment here at CURE Ethiopia not long after Belise. Join us in welcoming this family while they start their healing journey!

Early this morning, we found Belise with her father Dawit waiting for her turn to go to the operation room. Her first operation will be to correct her cleft lip and in a couple of months, she will have another surgery to take care of her cleft palate! Keep this sweet child in your prayers! Photo of Belise
