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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Shadrack's Story

“When this sickness started in 2016, my family was going through a lot of trouble. My husband had just been wrongfully convicted and sent to prison, then Shadrack got ill. I thought we were being bewitched. One day at home he (Shadrack) collapsed and became unconscious and I knew that he is now dead, but he slowly regained his consciousness. I went to a health center, but they said that nothing was wrong with him, so we resorted to church and he actually got better”, says Nusura, who converted to Christianity after her marriage to Emmanuel. Four months ago, Shadrack started complaining of headache and stomach ache. It so happens that at the same time, a team of missionaries were treating the sick in Nusura’s village, so she also took Shadrack to be seen and it is then that he was diagnosed with a Temporal Occipital Tumor. “I am just a peasant farmer and I didn’t have any money at the time because I am struggling with educating the four children, feeding them and taking care of the medical bills so I am lucky that I found the missionaries who brought me to this hospital. Back at home Shadrack has three siblings, one sister and a set of twin brothers. Shadrack says that he is so close to his brother Kato (One of the twins) because they play soccer together. Nusura called her sister to help and take care of the three other kids while she is with Shadrack at CURE, she calls them daily, and they are all well but worried about Shadrack’s illness. “Now that we are here (CURE), I know that Shadrack will be fine because God has already seen us through a lot”, said Nusura as she sat beside her youngest son.

We praise the Lord! Shadrack was discharged from ICU yesterday and he is doing very well. “I didn’t know if he would ever talk again but yesterday he started to speak and the first words he told me are that he wants to go back home. His smile is back, and he is feeding well,” Nusura said. Dr. Michael, who was by his side said, “I am happy that his bed in ICU is now empty. He is in the ward is going home tomorrow!” Today he will spend time in the physiotherapy department where Douglas, our physiotherapist, will teach Nusura what exercises he needs to be doing while at home. We give God all the glory and are so thankful for your prayers and support for Shadrack! Photo of Shadrack

“I have learned how to feed him in his state. I have also learned to be strong. Yesterday I spoke to my dad and he told me that the kids back at home are all fine and they are going to school,” Nusura said. Baby Shadrack is still on the ventilator and our nurses are closely monitoring him. Nurse Harriet said, “Today he is stable.” Please keep him in prayers! Photo of Shadrack

“I am scared. Shadrack has been put on very many machines. They told me that it was a major operation and in fact they finished it very late in the evening. They also told me that they need to keep him sleeping,” Nusura said. She told us that she didn’t sleep most of last night because she was very worried. Nusura was counseled and prayed for by Annet from our Spiritual Department and then she later attended devotions in the ward. Our medical team is constantly monitoring Shadrack in the ICU. Please be praying for him and for his mother Nusura. We invite you to encourage Nusura and let her know that you are praying for her and Shadrack through sending a Get Well message!
