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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Betselot is a friendly little girl! She came to CURE with her mother Meskerem seeking help for her hip problem. Her condition is called developmental dysplasia of the hip (DDH) which means her hip sockets are not in the proper position causing a length discrepancy between her two legs and thus a limp when she walks. Her family noticed her limping when she started walking and they took her to a hospital which in turn referred them here to CURE Ethiopia.
If her family had waited even a couple of more years, treating her condition would have been very difficult if not impossible. This sweet child would have then be forced to live with pain and difficulty for the rest of her life. But thankfully, Betselot is here and about to begin her healing journey!

Betselot got some eyeglass but it didn't take her that much time to lose one of the lenses! She is in great health and it is time for her to head back home. She will continue her recovery from there and return to CURE Ethiopia after few weeks for a cast change. We will see her again when she returns for admission! Photo of Betselot

Thank you all for your prayers! Little Betselot is showing a lot of progress from yesterday. She is eating well and feeling much better. Her mother Meskerem told us, Betselot is getting use to her new big spica cast. Continue praying for her as she recovers! Photo of Betselot

"She is not eating that much. Other than that, she is doing well" Betselot's mother Meskerem told us. The nurses are taking good care of her. She also has her barbie to keep her company while she continues her recovery. Please keep on praying for her! Photo of Betselot

Betselot's operation went great! The doctors did a beautiful job putting the head of her femur bone back into her hip socket. After placing it in the right position, they applied a spica cast which covers the lower part of her stomach and goes all the way down to her foot. Now Betselot is back in the ward recovering!

Before going to the OR we found Betselot running around the ward and having fun while hiding from her mother. She is having her first surgery today. Please pray for this little one as she starts her healing journey! Photo of Betselot
