CURE in Uganda

The picture above is of CURE in Uganda. Everyone who serves with CURE in Uganda, 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 Michele. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Michele. When you give a gift through Michele's CUREkids profile, your contribution will help us continue our work in countries like Uganda. 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 Michele. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“Even though I am a Muslim, I don’t feel bad being in this Hospital (CURE) because I believe in one God,” says Mariam.

Michele, Mariam’s daughter, was referred to CURE Hospital after all attempts to treat her condition had failed in other hospitals. Mariam sells clothes but she closed her shop because there wasn’t anyone to cover for her while she is at CURE Hospital. Her fiancé, Ismail, is at school studying health. Mariam’s relatives are aware that Michele was referred to CURE Hospital and they are planning to visit. Mariam didn’t grow up in a big family, she lost her mom when she was five years old and then she also lost her two younger siblings who were 2 years and six months respectively. Mariam was raised by her grandmother because her dad was a truck driver and was always on the road. Mariam and Ismail live together in a small town just an hour away from CURE Hospital. Ismail is very supportive and if he wasn’t at school, Mariam knows that he would be with her at CURE Hospital.

“I have been praying for my baby to walk . . . to see very well, to have knowledge, to write and read,” said Mariam. She has been thinking a lot about having Michele start school at the beginning of 2019 but would like her to be able to walk. Michele doesn’t seem to have any problems, in her words, “I am goodo!” Michele got to sit outside and enjoy the morning sun while her mother did a couple tasks this morning. The only thing keeping them at the hospital is Michele’s antibiotics which in a few days will be completed. Please continue to pray for Michele that she will make a full recovery from surgery and be able to start school next year! Photo of Michele

Michele is continuing to improve, she is eating well and no longer having fevers. She has four more days of antibiotics and then she will hopefully get to go home! This morning Mariam attended part of a pastors meeting, she sang songs of worship before she was called back to the ward because Michele was crying. The area around Michele’s bed has become a place for socializing, Mariam has made several friends in the hospital including the ladies in her section. They spent most the day just talking and encouraging each other. Mariam has less to do at the hospital because Joyce Mary went back home yesterday and is staying with one of their neighbors. Please keep Michele in your prayers that she will feel better and in a few days get to go home! Photo of Michele

“Michele is now fair, the temperature is not that high,” said Mariam. Michele seems to be doing better than Monday because she has started an antibiotic regimen which has resulted in her fevers trending down. Mariam attended the staff devotions this morning which she enjoyed, she was taught about giving your burdens to God. Later in the day they went to the play room which Michele and Joyce enjoyed, they played with a couple toys one of which Michele called, “press the baby.” While the kids played, Mariam assembled a puzzle and got her nails painted. Please remember Michele in your prayers that she will no longer have fevers. Photo of Michele

“I’m good,” said Michele. “Michele - she changes like a chameleon. They were suppose to discharge us on Saturday but she had fevers. The weekend was not good, Michele kept changing. She can be well then change out of no where,” said Mariam. Michele has been having high grade fevers so her doctors ran many tests with no conclusion as to why she is having a fever. Today they will take cerebrospinal fluid out of her shunt to see if there is an infection. Joyce Mary seems to like the hospital and she enjoys watching videos on her mom’s phone and running around and playing. Mariam is physically not well having abdominal and back pain, she is also a little discouraged Michele is not better yet. Please continue to pray for Michele that her doctors will discover the cause of her fevers and for her to start to improve. Photo of Michele

“I’m feeling so good, I’m feeling so good. I was very happy she is still alive. She has come back when she is alive! I give glory to God, He gets the glory, He is the creator,” said Mariam. Michele is being moved out of the ICU and back to the ward, however, she had a tough night. “The night was bad, she was vomiting the whole night,” said Mariam. Her doctors have given her some medication to help the vomiting, they think the vomiting is due to the pressure change in her head. Joyce Mary, Michele’s two year old sister, is at the hospital and she spent the morning slowly sneaking in and out of the ICU to see how her sister and mother were doing. Please be praying for Michele that she will continue to make good progress! Photo of Michele

“She is good, just preparing to go for surgery,” said Mariam. Michele has returned to CURE Uganda, she has been regressing in milestones so her mother has brought her back. This morning, Mariam and Michele practiced English, Mariam would ask her to touch her head, eyes, or nose and look at certain things or to practice words by repeating them. “How are you? I am fine,” said Michele. Michele is currently in surgery where her doctors have done an outside pressure measurement and now will most likely place a shunt. Please be praying for Michele to recover well from today’s operation. Photo of Michele
