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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Gorfe and her mother Aberash came to CURE Ethiopia seeking help for Gorfe’s foot problem. The family didn’t know what caused it, but they remember that her foot started bending when Gorfe was around six years old. According to her mother Aberash, Gorfe used to walk without a problem, but now, she walks on the heel of her left foot. “I took her to different holy water places to get healing, but her foot still bent upward,” Aberash shared. Recently, the family decided to seek medical intervention, and the hospital they visited referred them to CURE Ethiopia.

Gorfe is in seventh grade and loves going to school, but the children at school make fun of her foot and her walking. “It really hurts hearing all those mean words, but I love learning so I go to school. I want to study hard and be a Banker when I grow up,” proclaims Gorfe.

Now that Gorfe is at CURE Ethiopia, we are looking forward to being a part of her healing story. She is a motivated young girl that is going to do great things!
