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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I want to be a soccer player when I grow-up!” proclaims Mohammed.

Two years ago Mohammed was involved in a car accident where he badly hurt his foot. It makes walking hard and still hurts him to this day. His family took him to several different hospitals for treatment and while they tried a few different options, nothing really worked. “The last hospital told me they have to amputate his foot but I said no and started asking around to find other options”. Kasew, Mohammed’s father shared. Thankfully, they heard about CURE Ethiopia from another hospital and we met them at one of our mobile clinics near their village.

Mohammed is the youngest of six and has two brothers and three sisters. His mother stays home taking care of the children and his father is a daily laborer. He is in grade one and loves playing soccer with his friends! Please join us in welcoming the family while they start their healing journey!

As part of Mohammed's last operation he had a procedure called a "flap" which is kind of like a skin graft, but instead of just transferring skin from one location on the body to another, the doctors are transferring skin and tissue to essentially rebuild Mohammed's foot. To do this, they had to sew his right foot to the tissue donor site on his left leg. This is allowing the tissue to grow onto his foot while still being kept alive from his leg. It's a complicated procedure with the possibility of infection which is why he's going back into the OR so often for bandage changes and cleanings. The doctors estimate Mohammed will need another week before we can release the flap and his foot can be free again! Photo of Mohammed

One of our nurses, Hanna, was doing her afternoon rounds checking on all the kids. Mohammed was one and he's an old pro at this process now. He knows just how to help out Hanna in order to make the process as quick and easy as possible. After getting his temperature and checking his blood pressure, Hanna confirmed Mohammed is doing great!

Mohammed is such an energetic boy! This is him after his bandage change today, his second for the week. Dr. Tesfaye took off Mohammed's bandages, cleaned all the surgical wounds, and put on another bandage to help his foot continue its healing. Mohammed is doing well and enjoying licking his nose in the ward ... ? Photo of Mohammed

Another week, another trip to the OR and Mohammed's face says it all! Thankfully, today's visit is just for a bandage change and for the doctors to check how his foot is healing. Photo of Mohammed

We're continually impressed with this little man's attitude. He's one day out from surgery and having a hard time keeping food down, but he's just as playful and silly as ever! The nurses are keeping a close watch on him and he's been instructed to stay in bed so we have no doubt he'll be back to 100% in no time. Photo of Mohammed

Mohammed's operation went well! He had the little toe on his right foot amputated since it was mangled in a way where it caused him intense pain when he walked. Now, once he heals from his surgery, he will be able to walk pain free! He is doing well and resting in the ward. Please keep this young man in your prayers for a speedy recovery! Photo of Mohammed

Mohammed had a good weekend hanging out with the kids and mentally preparing himself to go to the OR. Turns out today is the day and Mohammed was all smiles as he waited his turn. Please keep this young man in your prayers! Photo of Mohammed

“Most of the time my foot is numb and I always have to limp when I walk, I want everything to change and to walk without problems” Mohammed told us. Well the good news is he is on his way to walking easily now that he is here at CURE Ethiopia with his father Kasew getting ready for his operation! Photo of Mohammed
