Why It Matters

The Problem

It is estimated that around 50,000 children in Ethiopia need urgent medical treatment due to their severe spinal conditions. Currently, there is an overwhelming lack of specialized pediatric care available for children with such critical needs. For every four million children in Ethiopia, there is just one fellowship-trained pediatric orthopedic surgeon. The profound impact of childhood spinal conditions goes beyond just physical health. These children frequently confront the harsh realities of social rejection, stigmatization, and in some extreme cases, neglect and abuse.

The Solution

At the Tim Tebow Foundation, we acknowledge the gravity of the situation, the profound suffering it causes, and the urgent need for action. That is why we are working hand-in-hand with CURE’s Medical Director in Ethiopia, Dr. Timothy Nunn, Dr. Rick Hodes (JDC), and African Mission Healthcare to provide much-needed medical care to precious image-bearers of God. Through our strategic partnership, we are able to support the first-ever pediatric spine center at CURE Children’s Hospital of Ethiopia. The Tebow Spine Center will provide the surgical and non-surgical care children need to correct their life-limiting spinal deformities, bringing immediate, tangible, and measurable change into their lives. These treatments will give them a chance at a longer, healthier life. We believe these steps truly help us take a significant stride towards addressing the urgent need for specialized pediatric care in Ethiopia.
