What am I giving to?

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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Angel's Story

“I don’t go to school, it is my brother Fred, and my sister Fiona who go to school. I will also go to school,” said Angel. Angel lives with her grandmother Margaret, who accompanied her to CURE Hospital. Angel is now three years old, she was born with spina bifida but has never gotten treatment up to now because when she was born her mother took her away from home and just returned her a year ago. When Margaret saw the condition of Angel she wanted to take her to a hospital but didn’t have the money. Fortunately, an NGO identified Angel, referred her to CURE Hospital, and even provided the transport to get here. Please join us in praying for Angel's healing!
