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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Gloria's Story

“In my life I have been to many hospitals, but I have never seen a hospital like this one (CURE Hospital) and I know that God is in this place. Gloria is better than she was when we first came to this place and I know that when she has her surgery, she will get healed,” said Godfrey, Gloria’s father. For the last three months Gloria has been afflicted with headaches, she has even lost her ability to walk, yet she was healthy like other children and was even in school. Prior to coming to CURE, she had been taken to six different hospitals but no one could manage her condition until she was finally brought to CURE where we diagnosed her with a brain tumor and our team of doctors are preparing her for surgery. Gloria’s mother stayed home to nurse their newest sibling. Although Gloria and her family live far away, approximately 500 miles from CURE Hospital, they have no worries, they are comfortably settled in the hospital and Gloria is awaiting surgery. Godfrey is a retired pastor and he has a total of four children. Please join us in praying for Gloria's healing!
