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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Miten is a friendly young girl! She came to CURE Ethiopia with her sister Webareg, seeking help for her clubfoot problem. She was born with the right side of her foot bent inward, and this is her first time visiting a hospital. Her family heard about CURE from a previous patient of ours and brought Miten to us!

Miten loves school and she is a fifth grader, but children in her school and village make fun of her foot and call her names. “I always cry when they say mean things to me and most of the time I avoid playing with my friends so that they won’t make fun of me,” Miten shared. Bullying is not the only problem Miten has, she also got tired after walking long distances and sometimes it is even painful for her to walk. Thankfully she is at CURE to start her healing journey and to leave all the pain and suffering behind. Thank you for your support in her journey!
