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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I love playing soccer but my foot hurts and I get tired so easily” Bereket tells us.

Bereket used to run around and walk without any problems, but three years ago his foot start hurting. He has a condition called cavovarus deformity where his foot arches higher than normal and slightly twists, makes it difficult to walk. His family took him to a hospital in their home town, but Bereket could not find the help he needed. With no other options, his family took him home to make the best of a bad situation. Thankfully, a relative learned about us here at CURE Ethiopia and shared the news with Bereket's family who have now brought him here!

Bereket is in the fourth grade and when asked about what he wants to do, he answers, "I haven’t decided yet but I love school and playing with my friends". He lives with his family and he is the youngest of two children. Both of his parents have small businesses and they are thankful to have found a place that can give them the help Bereket needs. Join us in welcoming this young boy while he starts his healing journey!

We found Bereket doing well as he came back for his check up today! His surgical wound is healing up nicely. His foot is also getting strong and stronger so the pin he had installed in there is no longer needed. The nurses removed it during his check up and gave him a new cast, optimized to help him begin walking! We'll see Bereket again next month for another check up. , he came back for his check-up today and the wound from his operation is healing well. To keep his foot in the corrected position Bereket had a pin inside his foot, the pin did its job well and today our nurses removed it for him. He got another walking cast on to help him continue his walking exercise and we will see him again in the end of next month when he returns for another check-up. Photo of Bereket

Before going home, Bereket had a little training on the walking bars. He was struggling at first but after practicing for a bit, he got a hang of it and did great walking with his cast on. He will continue healing and practicing his walking with his crutches from home. We will see him again in a couple of weeks when he returns for his check-up! Photo of Bereket
