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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Max's Story

"When I saw my baby, I had no idea what the swelling on his back was and neither did my parents," Rose told us while rocking Max to sleep. Rose is another victim of early teenage pregnancy whose numbers rose during the COVID 19 lockdown in Uganda. The government reopened schools for candidates in their final years and Rose was worried about how she would be received, "I was scared of my teachers and how my friends would treat me. To my surprise, I was warmly welcomed back to school until I was ready to give birth." Rose spoke while trying to avoid eye contact seemingly feeling guilty and undeserving. Unlike other teenage mothers who are forced into marriage or sent away to the father of the child's family, Rose's parents accepted her and took great care of her throughout her pregnancy. "After birth, we noticed the swelling on my son's back kept growing bigger and a nurse advised me to come to CURE for it to be removed," Rose told us. Little Max has Spina Bifida, a condition in which the spine does not close properly while in the womb leading to the formation of a sacklike swelling at the lower back. It can be treated through surgery, which baby Max will be scheduled to have soon. "I was warmly welcomed and told everything about my son's condition and I have hope that he will be fine." Rose added. "After all this, I want to go back to school, I want to study and become a doctor." Rose concluded with a smile. Join us as we welcome Rose and Max to the CURE family and please consider donating as your support helps out mothers like Rose save their precious children.
