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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Francis's Story

“Everyday I pray for my child’s healing and now that I am here, I believe that God has started to work,” said Rose. She says that in her village she has only seen two children with hydrocephalus, her son Francis and another child called Shakuru who is also at CURE Hospital. Rose and Shakuru’s mother Getrida are neighbours back at home and they were supposed to travel together, but Rose didn’t get her transport money on time so Getrida and Shakuru came first. In their village some people have been very discouraging, saying that Francis was affected by spirits, however, there are some people like Getrida who believed that this is a medical condition so they advised Rose to bring Francis to CURE for treatment. Rose has two children, her firstborn is called George and he is healthy and is two and a half years old. Rose says that she plans for Francis to have a normal life, study, and become a teacher or a doctor.This will only be possible if he has this life changing surgery, so please support and pray for him!

“I see a difference in Francis. The head has now gone down, when we came the head was big,” said Rose. Francis is doing well, he has no fevers and is feeding well. His doctors and nurses will teach Rose how to dress the pressure sores on his head and tomorrow Rose thinks they will get to go home which makes her feel encouraged. Rose has been spending time in prayer and tells us, ”I have been praying that God will make my child well.” Please join Rose in praying for Francis, that he will continue to improve and for them to be able to go home tomorrow.
