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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“Aggrey is my nephew, and since I don’t have any young children to take care of, I decided to bring him to CURE because his mother Lilian is still hospitalized after her C-section,” Joan said. When Lilian was still pregnant she did a scan and was told that her child has hydrocephalus. Lilian researched more about the condition and later found out that one of the students (Gideon) in the school that she teaches in has the same condition. Lilian and her husband then decided to visit Gideon’s father for advice. He told them that he had brought Gideon to CURE Uganda when he was still very young and that they shouldn’t delay in bringing him immediately after he was born. Lilian and her husband were ready to receive a child with hydrocephalus and just after he was born, Joan, his aunt who was in hospital with Lilian decided to board a bus to CURE Uganda hospital. “In my village I have seen three children die of this disease (Hydrocephalus) just because their parents didn’t know that it can be treated. Most of them would hide the children from the public and wait for them to die. Aggrey is lucky because his parents asked around and got to know the truth," Joan said. Back at home Aggrey has three siblings, the oldest is a teacher too like her parents, the second born is finishing high school and the third born is in nursery and as for Joan, she has one 19-year-old son. They are Christians and plan to baptize Aggrey immediately when they are out of the hospital. Please join us in praying for this family!

Aggrey’s feeding improved overnight and he doesn’t have any major concerns, so this morning Dr. Peter discharged him. He told Joan to call home and tell Aggrey’s mother Lilian not to travel to CURE. “Aggrey’s mother is going to be so excited to see him because she hasn’t spent much time with him since he was born. I'm just worried about the journey, I hope he doesn’t get too tired because we will be traveling close to 400 kilometers before we reach home” Joan said. Next week his stitches will be removed, and he will be reviewed in January 2019. Please be praying for journey mercies and good health for Aggrey, Joan and Mama Lilian. Photo of Aggrey

Please be praying for Aggrey because from last night he stopped feeding well and whatever little he manages to get in, it comes back up. During this morning’s ward rounds Dr Peter advised Joan to call Aggrey’s mother Lilian, explain his current condition to her and tell her to try and come to CURE Uganda and breastfeed him. Joan called Lilian immediately and she said she will be here by tomorrow. Please be praying for Lilian too as she is still recovering from her C-section. On a positive note, his Aggrey's head is responding well to surgery and is reducing in size. Thank you for your continued prayers for Aggrey and his family! Photo of Aggrey

“His mother is very happy about the progress and the other good news is that she told me that she was discharged from hospital. Everything is getting back to the normal now,” Joan said. Aggrey was discharged from ICU this morning and he is back in the ward. He is stable and is feeding well. Joan hasn’t left his sight much, even when he is sleeping she sits by his bedside. She said,” I feel like he will get lonely if I leave him.” Please be praying healing for Aggrey and strength for Joan as she gives him the emotional support he needs! Photo of Aggrey

“I am going to spread the news about CURE hospital so that people in my village know that hydrocephalus is treatable,” says Joan, Aggrey’s aunt. This morning he was the first patient to be taken to OR, he had an ETV/CPC which went successfully, and he is now in ICU where he will spend the night. “I have talked to his parents and they are relieved that the surgery went well,” Joan says. Please pray and support this family throughout this healing process! Photo of Aggrey
