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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Lealem's Story

“Some people in my village told me I broke his leg when I was pregnant with him,” Lealem’s mother Genet told us and continues, “but I didn’t believe that, I tell myself it is God’s work and started looking for help.”

“Some people in my village told me I broke his leg when I was pregnant with him,” Lealem’s mother Genet told us and continues, “but I didn’t believe that, I tell myself it is God’s work and started looking for help.”

Little Lealem and his mother Genet came to CURE Ethiopia seeking help for Lealem’s leg problem. Ever since birth, Lealem’s right leg was shorter than the left one because of a condition called Hemimelia. This is a condition where part of the fibula bone is missing causing a discrepancy in length between the legs. Lealem visited CURE Ethiopia when he was a couple of months old and when he started moving, he got a brace to help him walk but he still needs an operation to walk better and comfortably.
This little guy is second born for his parents and he has an older sister. His mom Genet stays home with them and his father is an electrician. Please join us in welcoming the family as they start their healing journey!
