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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Simona is a friendly and playful little girl! She came to CURE Ethiopia with her mother Medhanit seeking help for her hip problem. When she started walking, the family didn’t notice her limping but when she gets older it started to show. The family took her to a hospital but didn’t get the help that Simona needed.

The family heard about CURE Ethiopia from a previous patient and brought Simona to the hospital for treatment. We found that Simona has a dislocated right hip joint which is causing a length discrepancy between her legs and a limp when she walks. Her condition is completely treatable now, but if the family would have waited just a few more years, her condition would have become untreatable. We're so thankful that Simona is at CURE Ethiopia now, and that she will get the treatment she needs! Join us in thanking God for bringing her to us, and please welcome this sweet child as she starts her healing journey!

Simona is doing well! After seeing her X-ray and assessing her health, the doctors decided to send her back home. She will continue her healing from there, and we will see her again in a few weeks when she returns for a spica cast change. Please keep her in your prayers for a safe return back to the hospital!

Simona's surgery went wonderfully! The right side of her femur bone head is back into her hip socket. After placing it in the right position, Dr. Laurence applied a spica cast which covers half of her stomach and goes all the way down to her foot. Now, Simona is back in the ward recovering!
