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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Agulance is a peasant farmer who lives just a few kilometers from CURE Uganda. She has been married twice and has given birth to a total of eight children. Her first marriage was abusive with violence and it ended up in a divorce. Her ex-husband decided to keep their four children and for two years, Agulance lived with her parents until she met Moses. Her relationship with Moses developed into marriage and they have four children, Christine being the youngest. When Christine was born she was completely healthy like her siblings. Three days after birth however she became very irritable and cried a lot prompting her mother Agulance to take her to the nearest health center in her village. She was treated for malaria and discharged.
“Two months after we were discharged from hospital Christine’s head started to increase but it isn’t me who noticed, it is my neighbor who did but I contested, I thought it was just her hair- she had a lot of hair on her head. My neighbor advised me to shave Christine’s hair and it is after that that I realized that her head had actually increased,” Agulance says. Christine was taken back to the village health center but this time the clinician there referred her to a pediatrician who then referred Christine to CURE Uganda. Agulance says that she has laid Christine in God’s hands and is waiting for God’s miracle. Please pray for Christine's healing and strength for Aqulance!

“I was worried during the operation. I was wondering if the baby would come back from the surgery alive. I went there (to the chapel service) and was praying there for a successful surgery,” said Agulance. Christine was under the care of nurse Ruth this morning before she was moved back to the ward, she reported that Christine had a seizure and a high heart rate after surgery but since then she has stabilized. Labs will be run today due to her pale color. “Baby is improving compared to how she came, though I was informed that baby might be anemic. They will do blood work and if so, they will transfuse,” said Agulance. “(My) prayer request is for the baby to have a quick recovery,” shared Agulance. Please pray for Christine's improvement and healing! Photo of Christine
