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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

"I wish I had come to CURE much earlier, my daughter would have been in a much better state," Hellen regrets.

Hellen remembers taking her little girl to the hospital to find out the course of her head explaining in size and she was told it was Hydrocephalus.
This is a condition where the brain produces excessive fluid that the body can't get rid of, thus causing the head to expand in size.

"We spent so much money just to get treatment from one of the hospitals and their services were so bad that our daughter nearly lost sight," Hellen recalled.

Desperate and in need of help, Hellen sought other options and someone told her about CURE Uganda and what we do.

"I asked my husband, he told me he did not have any more money to spend as they had almost sold everything," Hellen said.

"But when I came to CURE, I was so shocked. No one asked me for money. And for what they are doing, no amount of money can pay them." Hellen spoke with such admiration.

Please welcome them to CURE Uganda and stand with them in prayer and encouragement as Florence starts her healing journey.
