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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Tamirat's Story

“Kids in his school make fun of his arm and he doesn’t want to go to school because of that,” Tamirat’s father Addisu told us and continued, “I hope all that stops for him and he goes to school just like other children.”

“Kids in his school make fun of his arm and he doesn’t want to go to school because of that,” Tamirat’s father Addisu told us and continued, “I hope all that stops for him and he goes to school just like other children.”

Tamirat and his father Addisu came to CURE Ethiopia seeking help for Tamirat’s arm problem. When he was three years old, while playing, he fell and hurt his arm. His grandparents took him to a traditional healer but his arm healed in a way that left his right forearm shortened because the bone is a little bent. Since it didn’t heal properly, Tamirat has pain from time to time. Tamirat’s father is a solider and he was on duty while the accident happened but once he came back home, he started looking for help for his son. After going to different hospitals, he finally heard about CURE in one of the hospitals and brought Tamirat here. Now Tamirat is here and ready to start his healing journey!

Right before going to the operation room, Tamirat was outside running around and playing. Today he had an examination under anesthesia to see the healing progress of his wrist and a frame adjustment. While not a big procedure, it would have been too painful were he awake for it. Tamirat is healing well and now he is back in the ward resting. Please keep on praying for him! Photo of Tamirat
