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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“My child’s condition has made me to pray more because I know that prayer, coupled with treatment, will make Deo fine,” said Prossy. Prossy had never seen or heard about hydrocephalus. It was a friend whose child had hydrocephalus who identified Deo and advised Prossy to take him to Katalemwa (CURE Uganda Partners) and thereafter to CURE Hospital. Her firstborn, Joel, is completely healthy and is very close to Deo. Joel is now living with his grandmother until Prossy and Deo return home. Back at home, Prossy does a little farming and her husband is a boda boda taxi driver. Please join us in praying for Deo's healing!
