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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Waiswa's Story

“When I saw that, (Waiswa’s back) I got so scared even the people I was with were very sacred,” said Angela. After giving birth she thought about going to a nearby mosque but she wasn’t sure if they would pray for the baby. “I was so scared, I couldn’t pray,” said Angela. Angela is Catholic while Waiswa’s father who he is named after, is a Muslim. Waiswa was delivered at their local hospital which referred them 90 minutes away to Iganga Hospital which sent them to CURE Uganda. “I was encouraged… we didn’t need to fear because there are many kids with such conditions,” said Angela. She has hopes that Waiswa will someday become a lawyer. Angela works as a police officer and has lots of interactions with lawyers and likes their profession. Along with being a police officer she writes songs, her favorite is titled, 'I’m looking far away'. It's about what she and her family have gone through. A few of her songs have even been performed by local musicians. Angela lives with Waiswa who works as a businessman and baby Waiswa is their first child. Please join us in praying for healing for Waiswa!

“Am really happy to be heading home. To be honest I was tired of being in hospital and at least when I get home my mother is going to give me a hand in caring for Waiswa because it hasn’t been easy for me,” Angela said. She will be reviewed in a mobile clinic in Kampala and hopes to resume work next week. Please keep Waiswa and Angela in your prayers. Photo of Waiswa

“I request that my friends out there to pray that we get out of this situation victorious," Angela shared. She is glad that they are now out of ICU and back to the ward, however, Waiswa is still irritable but has been given Panadol. Today is Waiswa’s fifth day of the ten-day antibiotics regiment. Angela says that the nurses are taking good care of her and Waiswa and she is grateful for that. Please continue to pray for Waiswa! Photo of Waiswa

“I cried through the night, I was so discouraged maybe the baby has died,” said Angela about her first night in the ICU. Waiswa had a slow recovery from surgery and stayed intubated longer than normal. Yesterday he was on phototherapy to treat jaundice and he is now doing much better so his doctors are transferring him to the ward. Yesterday was a public holiday so many staff members were off, so this morning Winnie from our Spiritual Department was able to spend time praying with Angela. Please be praying for Waiswa that he will recover well from surgery and not develop hydrocephalus. Photo of Waiswa

This morning Angela was very worried about the surgery, she was counseled by Winnie from the Spiritual Department and received prayer from several staff members. Please be praying for Waiswa that he will have a quick recovery! Photo of Waiswa
