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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I have never seen anyone who has a cleft lip before and seeing my baby for the first time was so hard for me. I was so sad but learning there is healing for him helps me a little”. Aster, Kena’s mother, shared.

Little Kena and his mother Aster came to CURE Children's Hospital of Ethiopia seeking help for Kena’s cleft lip and palate problems. These problems are, Kena was born with an opening in the upper part of his lip and the roof of his mouth. A relative to the their family knew about CURE and told them to bring Kena to the hospital.
Kena comes from a family of farmers and he is the first and an only child to his parents. Aster is so happy to have found a place that will help her heal her son.

Please join us in welcoming the family while they start their healing journey!
