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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Ebisa's Story

"I had never seen anyone with this condition before, but I knew God gave him to me," Birhane told us about her son Ebisa who's name means "blessing" in their language. Birhane confides in us that out of her eight children, Ebisa is her favorite. "I give him the most attention because he needs me the most" she explains. You see, Ebisa was born with a cleft lip, an easily visible condition that marks him not only physically, but also socially. Rumors swirled in their community that this was some supernatural karma. People said Birhane must have seen someone else with a cleft lip and laughed at them so God is punishing her. Thankfully Birhane understands that Ebisa's cleft lip is merely a medical condition. Birhane eventually brought Ebisa to a nearby hospital which confirmed Ebisa's cleft lip was easily treatable with surgery and referred Birhane and Ebisa here to us at CURE Ethiopia. Now that treatment is in sight for Ebisa, Birhane is beginning to look beyond and into his future. She dreams of him overcoming the condition of his birth to excel in school and not earn just one academic degree, but several!

Ebisa was on his mother back, all dressed up and ready to go home! His lip is healing nicely so Dr. Tesfaye says there no reason Ebisa can't continue healing from the comfort of his own home. We will see Ebisa again next week when he returns for his check-up! Photo of Ebisa

Thank you all for your prayers. Ebisa's surgery went really well. Dr. Tesfaye did a beautiful job sewing the two sides little Ebisa's cleft lip together. Please keep this little boy in your prayers as he starts his recovery. Photo of Ebisa

Birhane is excited to be here at CURE Ethiopia with her son Ebisa. He's not quite as excited, but please pray for them as they adjust to their new hospital surroundings and get ready for Ebisa's cleft lip surgery! Photo of Ebisa
