CURE in Niger

The picture above is of CURE in Niger. Everyone who serves with CURE in Niger, 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 Faiza. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Faiza. When you give a gift through Faiza's CUREkids profile, your contribution will help us continue our work in countries like Niger. 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 Faiza. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Faiza's Story

"It's probably God's will," says Faiza's grandmother, Salami, to explain her cleft lip. Here at CURE Hospital we know that getting healed is also a part of God's will and we are happy to give them the opportunity to experience that as well.

Faiza comes from a town directly east of Niamey and borders the country of Nigeria. Recently, CURE Hospital made a big outreach mission in this area and her grandmother, Salami, heard about it. She already had heard about CURE Hospital on the radio and she wanted to get more information about the surgery they could get. Faiza used to go to school but she doesn’t anymore because her cleft lip makes it hard for her to speak properly and to be understood. Because of that, she wasn’t able to learn well and her mother decided that it would be better if she stayed at home. Sadly, her parents passed away and she’s now living with her grandmother who takes care of her and her little brother as well. Faiza loves to play with her friends, they pretend to cook or to sew like grown up ladies. They also love to play “karapke”, a game with little stones they need to catch more quickly than their competitors can. We are happy to welcome you here, dear Faiza, and we are looking forward seeing you healed!

Do you remember Faiza, the beautiful girl who came to the hospital some months ago for a cleft lip surgery? She came back and today she’s having her palate surgery.

The irritating thing with having surgery for cleft lip is that during the recovery, it’s not really possible to smile because the skin may still feel very tender.

Faiza is a lovely girl who likes to play with her friends. It’s hard for her to speak properly because of her cleft lip and it has even caused her to drop out of school.

We are glad to welcome Faiza to CURE Hospital and she has already made some new friends here! She will have surgery on April 29th, please pray with us that everything goes well! Photo of Faiza
