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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Nejat's Story

“I don’t like wearing a scarf but I have to, so that I could cover my neck,” Nejat shares and continues, “I want to be healed and be free like all of my friends”.

When Nejat was just four years old, she was playing with her siblings in the house and accidentally tripped and fell into the fire. Her parents rushed her to the nearest local hospital, but her initial treatment did not heal her neck completely. Her skin developed skin contracture that attached her chin down to her chest.

Because of the deformity that developed, some people in Nejat’s village make fun of her neck. Nejat protects herself by covering her neck and part of her face with a scarf to avoid being bullied. Thankfully, Nejat heard about CURE Ethiopia through another patient and sought proper treatment for burn contracture. On top of her hopes to become fully healed, Nejat also desires to be a teacher someday. Please welcome Nejat with us as she starts her healing journey!

Look at Nejat's progress! All the burn contracture that had been pulling her skin is gone and the wound from the operation is healing well too! She is doing great! Today, she had a dressing change, where Dr. Tesfaye cleaned her wound and removed the old bandage and replaced it with a new one. We will see her again when she returns for another check-up!

Nejat's surgery was a success! Dr. Tesfaye did a beautiful job and released the burn contracture on her neck and extended it as well. She got a neck collar to keep her neck in the corrected position. Now, Nejat is back in the ward resting. Please keep praying for a speedy recovery! Photo of Nejat
