CURE raising money for 100 surgeries

Ethiopia (MNN) — The needs of children in Ethiopia are phenomenal. CURE International understands their needs and started doing something about it.

The CURE Ethiopia Children's Hospital (CECH) is a pediatric orthopedic teaching hospital in Addis Ababa. Established in 2008, the hospital is a state-of-the-art, 60-bed hospital complex that provides modern medical and surgical care to the physically disabled children of Ethiopia.

Just recently, CURE launched CUREkids in Ethiopia, telling the stories of the kid's they're serving in their hospital. The goal? To encourage you to get involved in their journey.

To kick off this new community, the Rees-Jones Foundation has offered a generous $50,000 matching gift to support specific patients in Ethiopia through CUREkids!

CURE hopes it will help them reach their goal of 100 surgeries in Ethiopia. As you support CURE's work in Ethiopia by helping a specific child on their Web site, you can have a life-changing impact on a child with a curable disability. When you do, it'll be matched dollar-for-dollar.

In addition, CECH fills a critical need for an orthopedic residency program in Ethiopia, providing training in pediatric and advanced orthopedic techniques, and is an international COSECSA accredited training facility.

The hospital has a dual focus on pediatric orthopedics and pediatric plastic reconstruction. The hospital treats disabilities such as cleft lip and palate, clubfoot, limb deformities, and other physical disabilities.

CECH brings modern, up-to-date standards and equipment, including first world anesthesia medications and monitoring, intra-operative fluoroscopy, and digital xray.

Since the fall of 2006, in collaboration with Smile Train, CURE has developed cleft lip and cleft palate surgical programs in most of CURE's hospitals worldwide. These programs not only provide transformative surgery for children, but counseling to the families. This is where Christ can make a difference.
