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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

"The doctor saw how puzzled I was about the swelling on my son's back and asked me if I knew about CURE," Jesca told us.

Mark was born with spina bifida, a condition where the spine fails to close properly while the baby is being formed in the womb, causing some tissues to stick out in a sacklike swelling on the lower back.

"When I came to CURE, I saw the standard of work here and kinda got worried about how much I would be charged to pay. I was surprised when I was told not to worry about any payment," Jesca spoke with her eyes widened, seemingly still shocked.

Tests have been run, and Mark has been scheduled for surgery soon. Please welcome Jesca and baby Mark to the CURE family!
