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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“We didn’t notice anything until recently, and right after we did we took him to a hospital,” Fanuel’s mother Yeshimebet shared.

Fanuel is the youngest child for his parents and has two older sisters. He is a playfully young child, and according to his mom, Yeshimebet is restless and always running in the house with his siblings. He came to CURE Ethiopia seeking help for his bowed legs, a condition is where both of his legs bend outwards instead of being straight. After finding out Fanuel’s leg was bending outward, the family started looking for help. The local hospital referred them to CURE Ethiopia for treatment. Fanuel started his treatment with medication, but he will need surgery to fully straighten and correct his legs.

For now, Fanuel’s leg problem is not affecting him that much. But in a few more years, his condition would worsen, and he would have pain as well. We are thankful he is here at CURE Ethiopia and starting will begin his healing journey soon!
