What am I giving to?

CURE in Uganda

The picture above is of CURE in Uganda. The doctors, nurses, technicians, cooks, cleaners, and administrators of CURE Uganda 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 Jasper. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $2000 for every procedure we provide Jasper and kids like him. When you give a gift through Jasper's CUREkids profile, your contribution is designated to an exclusive country fund for CURE's work in Uganda, and those funds can only be used for operational expenses to treat patients in 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 Jasper. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

“We realized that Jasper isn’t OK when he was three months, his head was just increasing and his left leg became weak, however prior to that, he had been a very healthy child. I had never seen such a disease before, so when I consulted with my friends, they advised that we take Jasper to a hospital so we took him to Mulago Hospital but we failed to find a neurosurgeon but we saw him the second time. We kept visiting that doctor for a week then he referred us to this hospital,” said Annet. Annet is a housewife and her husband Bosco is a teacher, Jasper is their only child. Bosco is very supportive, he accompanied his family as they traveled to CURE however he couldn’t stay because CURE Hospital only has room for one caretaker to stay. Please be praying for Jasper as he will be going into surgery soon!

Jasper and his mother spent the night in the ICU and today they are being moved back to the ward which makes Annet happy. She has spent the morning by his bed side in the ICU and with her friends sitting outside. Please continue to pray for Jasper, that he has a quick and smooth recovery. Photo of Jasper
