President Sahle-Work Zewde comfort one of the patients of Cure Ethiopia at children’s Orthopaedic Hospital in Addis Abeba. Joined by Rick Gardner (MD), medical director of Cure Ethiopia, the President comforted children undergoing corrective treatments at the hospital for bone and muscle deformities.
Sahle-Work’s visit on the morning of January 22, 2018, marked the 10th anniversary of Cure International’s office in Ethiopia. She toured the hospital, heard from parents and patients and met with Roger Spoelman, president of Cure International.
"The work you are doing is a huge contribution to a whole generation," she said. "You are giving them hope."
Cure Ethiopia, whose centre is located in Sidist Kilo area on Algeria Street, is a teaching hospital that served 8,737 outpatients and carried out 2,650 surgeries in the last fiscal year. Two years ago, it opened the Rees-Jones Foundation Ward, a rehabilitation facility.
Cure International's first hospital was in Kenya, and it recently opened its newest centre in Zambia. Since its establishment in the mid-nineties, the organisation has served over three million outpatients and performed 200,000 surgical procedures.
