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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Adanech and her mother, Meste, traveled for hours on foot to get to a city near their village so that they could travel the rest of the way to the CURE Children's Hospital of Ethiopia. They came to the hospital seeking help for Adanech’s burn contractures.

Years ago, when Adanech was just an infant, her three older sisters made a fire to prepare coffee for their mom, but little Adanech’s clothes caught on fire and burned her leg and hands. Thankfully, nothing happened to the rest of her siblings. After the accident, Adanech received treatment, but her right foot healed with a burn contracture. It was slight at first, but over time, it got worse and forced Adanech to limp.

Adanech is in second grade and dreams of becoming a doctor someday. Children in her school make fun of her foot and call her mean names. “When the children are mean to her, if they are older, she always cries and comes home,” Meste, Adanech’s mother, explained.

Now, Adanech is at CURE Ethiopia, ready to begin her healing journey. Please join us in welcoming her to the CURE family!
