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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Megbaru's Story

“He loves his school, but people make fun of his foot, and he always cries and asks me to find him treatment so that he could be like the other children in school,” Aleme, Megbaru's mother, shared.

“He loves his school, but people make fun of his foot, and he always cries and asks me to find him treatment so that he could be like the other children in school,” Aleme, Megbaru's mother, shared.

Megbaru is the youngest in his family and is in first grade. He feels different from other kids at his school because of his clubfoot. Megbaru was born with his right foot bending significantly inward, a condition called clubfoot that can be painful and make walking difficult. The family began looking for help a few years back, but when Megbaru’s father passed away, they stopped their search for a while. A year ago, Aleme started up the search again, and the hospital she went to referred them to CURE Ethiopia. They came to one of our mobile clinics for review and were scheduled for surgery!

Megbaru and his mother Aleme traveled for two days to get to CURE Ethiopia. Now that they are here, we are excited to witness the healing and transformation that is about to happen!

Please welcome Megbaru and Aleme to CURE Ethiopia!

Megbaru is making friends and having fun in the long term patient ward! Today we found him playing a parachute game with his friends, it is a game where the kids have to keep the ball on the parachute and a person that lets the ball fall has to tell a little bit about themselves to the group. "I want to be a doctor someday," is what Megbaru told everyone when it is his turn. Please continue praying for him! Photo of Megbaru

Megbaru is adjusting to having his foot in a cast. It's not fun to be restricted, but it's important! What's happening is the cast is stretching the soft tissues in Megbaru's foot in order to get it ready to respond in the best way possible when it's time for surgery. Over the next few months, he'll have a new cast every two weeks and each one will stretch his foot just a little more towards straight! While he's a little uncomfortable, we've hooked him up with a wheelchair and he's in good company as he spends time with all the other kids in our long term patient ward! Photo of Megbaru

Megbaru is a playful young boy! He will have different stages of treatments to straighten his foot. The first stage is casting, the second is surgery, and the final stage is a supporting brace. He has begun casting and will have a new cast every two weeks until his foot is ready for the operation. Please keep him in your prayers! Photo of Megbaru
