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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Nayli's Story

“I want to go to school just like my brothers”. Nayil told us.

A couple of years back there was a fire in Nayil’s house when she was inside with her siblings. Unfortunately, she was asleep at the time and while the others were able to run out, she was trapped and suffered severe burns to her left arm and torso. Her family has been to many different hospitals seeking help for Nayil's burn contractures, but they were turned away time and time again. Nayil's family is not a rich family so all the traveling was beginning to cost more than they could afford and they made the difficult decision to quit their search for treatment. But as is often the case, in this darkest moment is when they finally found hope. A previous CURE Ethiopia patient saw Nayil and was able to share with her and her family that she could be treated here!

Nayil comes from a family of farmers and is the third child of four as well as the only girl. All of Nayil's siblings go to school, but because of her burns, she is unable. Once she's healed, that's the first thing she says she'll do!

Latest Updates


Good news for Nayli, sad news for us: Nayli was discharged! The doctors say there's no reason she needs to stay at the hospital and she can continue her healing from the comfort of her own home, surrounded by her family! We'll miss having her and her big smile around, but we'll be seeing her when she comes back for her next wound cleaning and bandage change!

Two pieces of big news and one piece of small news today. Big news 1: Nayli got moved from a small annex ward down to the main ward over the weekend! Big news 2: Nyali had her first bandage change today. Since her arm is still pretty tender, the doctors brought her into the OR and put her to sleep so they could get in there and clean everything thoroughly without causing any pain. And the small news (and maybe it's actually big news) is Nyali is finally feeling well enough to be up and about and she is making friends left and right. We love seeing her beautiful smile shine more! Photo of Nayli

Nayli still hasn't started moving around so she just has to watch the other children playing. Not ideal, but she's spending her time resting and chatting with her father Jemal! Please keep praying for a speedy recovery! Photo of Nayli

Nayli is bed bound for the moment as she recovers, but she doesn't seem to mind too much. She's in a corner of the ward surrounded by people who all speak her language and the little community that has formed (and a few mobile games) keeps her smiling! Photo of Nayli

Nayli's surgery was a success! Dr. Tesfaye did a beautiful job releasing the burn binding her arm to her chest. Even though she has a lot of bandages around her chest now and a little pain from the operation, she is so happy she can lift her arm and touch her hair for the first time in years! Please keep this sweet child in your prayers for a speedy recovery! Photo of Nayli

"I don't know" says Nayli when we ask her what she wants to do in the future. Her first goal is to start school and then take things step by step from there. She is here at CURE Ethiopia with her father Jemal and they're getting ready for her burn contracture release surgery. Please keep this young girl in your prayers! Photo of Nayli
