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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“When I first visited CURE Hospital in July, my life was troubled and I used to cry a lot, but then I was ministered to by Pastor Winnie and I gave my life to Christ. Ever since then, Pastor Winnie has been counseling and encouraging me and I have learned how to pray. When I pray, I feel like the burdens have been lifted from my heart,” Mariam said. After giving birth to her youngest daughter Zauma, Mariam was very sickly and she wasn't able to nurse her baby, she was instead given cow milk and Mariam says that Zauma lost a lot of weight, became frail and sickly. She was taken to a hospital which referred her to CURE Uganda, however when she got here, our doctors noticed that she also had a heart condition so she was first referred to the heart institute and now she is back at CURE Hospital so her hydrocephalus can be treated. Mariam is a widow and she has eight children. Her children are being cared for by a neighbor while she and Zauma are at CURE Hospital. When she is at home, she works in people’s farms for money. Mariam is very grateful that she is at CURE Hospital and she has hope that Zauma will be healed. Please join us in praying for Zauma's healing and that Mariam will be encouraged and grow in her faith while here.

Zauma and Mariam went home on Saturday and she took over the responsibility of caring for her friend Aisha’s children in addition to her own. She also got news from her neighbor that the landlord is still pressuring her to pay up her rent or leave the house, but she is still trusting God for a miracle. Before she left CURE Hospital, the doctors wrote a letter referring Zauma back to the heart institute. Mariam will wait until Aisha returns so that she can take over responsibility of their children while she and Zauma travel to the heart institute in Kampala. Mariam was very excited when we told her that Ibra’s surgery (Aisha's son) was successful and she thanks God for that. Let us please pray for God to continue providing for these two families.

Mariam is relieved because the NG tube wasn’t inserted into Zauma. Back at home however, things aren’t good. She was informed that her children didn’t have lunch or supper yesterday. Mariam was also told that her landlord plans to evict her from her home. “He told neighbors that I am at a very expensive hospital yet I haven’t paid him up. He doesn’t know that I am just being helped by CURE,” Mariam told us. Zauma also tested positive for Malaria. She is now on IV drugs, but will switch to tablets tomorrow when she gets discharged. Mariam has been thinking about her children all night and can’t wait to be discharged from CURE Hospital. Please keep her and her family in your prayers! We will be calling her on Monday to follow up and encourage her. Photo of Zauma

Zauma had a fever last night, she is weak and hasn’t been feeding well for the last 12 hours. Our doctor is planning to insert an NG tube (nasogastric tube) to aid her in her feeding, but Mariam doesn’t want it to come to that because the last time Zauma had an NG tube she was so restless and cried a lot. She has been sent to the laboratory where different tests are going to be run. Pastor Winnie visited with Zauma and Mariam and prayed for them. We call upon all of you to keep her in prayer as well. Please pray that Zauma would start to have positive progress and for peace for Mariam. Photo of Zauma

“Yesterday I was nervous, but I prayed and fasted for the surgery to be successful and so today I am giving thanks and praising the Lord for answering my prayers. The doctors had told me that Zauma’s surgery would be complicated because she has a heart condition, but still I had faith that all would be well and it is well,”said Mariam. Zauma spent the night in ICU but Mariam is hoping that they will be discharged and sent to the general ward today. She is feeding well and all her vitals are stable. We give God the glory.

“I’ve prayed by faith, I believe things will get better. I want my baby to be fine,” said Mariam. Zauma had surgery today and he was Dr. Justin’s second case of the day. An ETV/CPC was performed, he is now in the PACU waking up from the operation. Please remember Zauma and Mariam in your prayers, for him to recover well and for strength for his mother.

“What I love most about being in this hospital is devotion time. I love the praise and worship,” said Mariam. Zauma was scheduled for surgery today, but was replaced by an emergency surgery that came up. Mariam however says that she has faith that the surgery will be successful. Please keep her in your prayers. Photo of Zauma
