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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Nakato's Story

“In the 58 years that I have lived I have never seen anyone with this condition (hydrocephalus) but I used to hear about it,” says Loy, Nakato’s grandmother.

“In the 58 years that I have lived I have never seen anyone with this condition (hydrocephalus) but I used to hear about it,” says Loy, Nakato’s grandmother.

When Nakato developed hydrocephalus the biggest question that her family had was “why Nakato and not her twin sister Babirye?” Rispa, Nakato’s mom, Stephen his dad and Loy his grandmother embarked on a search for answers and ended up at CURE Hospital after being referred by a government Hospital. Nakato has a very supportive family and although they are economically challenged they are a happy family. Rispa and Loy are peasants and Stephen is a fisherman. When Nakato was referred to CURE Hospital her family didn’t have money to transport her. Rispa, Loy and Stephen had to spend a week fishing and when he had sold off the fish he gave Rispa the money for their transport to CURE Hospital. They have arrived and Nakato will be in surgery soon. Please pray with us for transformational healing!

"I had a bad day because there are many kids admitted in the ward," said Loy. She feels sad seeing sick kids. During the night, the twins Nakato and Babirye had fevers and the doctors treated that. By this afternoon, they were bright, jolly, strong and playful. Please keep them in your prayers!
