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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Gregoire's Story

Gregoire is the youngest of 7 kids, and he’s not attending school yet but really wants to go! He’s not really a new patient at CURE, but rather first came through here in 2011. His case has been the center of a debate, because when he was a bab… Read more

Gregoire is the youngest of 7 kids, and he’s not attending school yet but really wants to go! He’s not really a new patient at CURE, but rather first came through here in 2011. His case has been the center of a debate, because when he was a baby, he got sick and received an injection. After that, his leg swelled, so his mother took him back to the hospital. He was diagnosed with an infection, and they also discovered he had anemia. Then, he got surgery to try to fix his leg, but it didn’t help.

His mother Kifalba heard about CURE Hospital through a mobile clinic planned by missionaries. When Gregoire came here, our doctor discovered that it may be hard to operate on him because his hip is now dislocated! Gregoire will have surgery soon and we hope it will go smoothly! Welcome back, Gregoire!

Gregoire stopped in for his scheduled check up and he is doing great! He's walking fine and his leg difference is down from 2 inches to 1.5 inches! Progress is slow, but it is indeed happening. Photo of Gregoire

Oct 12, 2018

Gregoire is here for his six month check up and he is looking good. He still favors his longer leg, but he no longer uses a walker or a crutch! We, once again, were able to deliver over 20 of your get well messages to this young man. Thank you for loving him so well! Photo of Gregoire

Apr 12, 2018

Gregoire stopped by for another follow up today and we were able to read him the FLOODS of get well messages you all have been sending him! Thank you for that! The doctors say he's looking good. He does walk with a limp despite the fact that he has his shoe with the height differential compensation. He's been instructed to intentionally walk on that foot as he has a habit of just hopping around on his good leg. We'll see him again in six more months! Photo of Gregoire

Dec 05, 2017

Gregoire is all healed up, and has headed home! He'll be returning to us in six months when his two femurs (upper leg bone) will be X-rayed in order to measure the difference between the two. It's a slow, but steady progress!

Oct 02, 2017

Our man's surgery was quick and straight forward. He'll be hanging out in the ward for a while longer, but he's just happy he doesn't need another cast! Praise Jesus! Photo of Gregoire

Sep 29, 2017

Gregoire is here and is, indeed, getting that surgery to fuse his growth plate that we talked about in the last status update. It's not a huge surgery, but it'll stop his longer leg from growing as his shorter one catches up. He's calm and seems ready, but please keep him in your prayers as he goes in for the surgery! Photo of Gregoire

Sep 18, 2017

Gregoire stopped back in for a follow-up, and is completely healed from his last surgery! It's now time to start addressing the length difference between his two legs. The doctors are putting Gregoire through an observation process to determine the exact length difference, and are considering a surgery where they'll temporarily fuse his growth plate on his longer leg. This would prevent the longer leg from growing any more while the shorter leg catches up. Please pray for the doctors as they make their decisions on the operation, and for Gregoire's healing journey! Photo of Gregoire

Jul 20, 2017

Our man's wounds are healing up nicely and he's been told he can go home and finish up his healing there! Photo of Gregoire

Jul 13, 2017

Gregoire took part in an art therapy class this week where he made two flowers. One flower was for himself and the other was for his sister who is here with him. The deal was he had to tell his sister something nice when he gave her the flower. He ended up telling her that he was thankful that she brought him here to CURE! Photo of Gregoire

Jul 11, 2017

Today starts Gregoire's wound cleanings! Everything is looking good so far and hopefully it'll continue to be an easy and straight forward process! Photo of Gregoire

Jul 07, 2017

Since Gregoire lives pretty far away and he'll need regular wound cleanings to make sure his leg doesn't get infected where the pins were taken out, he is staying in our guest house. We're definitely happy to still have him around! Photo of Gregoire

Jul 06, 2017

Gregoire's pin removal was so quick and painless, he was actually discharged yesterday evening as soon as he was fully awake from the medicine!

Jul 05, 2017

Change of plans, Gregoire is back and going into surgery to remove a few wires and pins that are no longer needed! Photo of Gregoire

Jun 29, 2017

Our man Gregoire stopped back in for a check up! The doctor noticed that Gregoire's hip is a little out of place so he ordered 4 cm to be taken off our man's shoe and that he come back in a month to see where things are at! Photo of Gregoire

May 18, 2017

Grégoire was back today for a check up and he is rocking that shoe he got measured for before he left almost a year ago! His knee does stick out a little and he has some trouble bending it so we're talking with his family about the possibility of another surgery, but, for now, Grégoire has gone on his way home again! Photo of Gregoire

Jun 14, 2016

Grégoire had his consultation for an orthopedic shoe yesterday, and he will receive this shoe, but not immediately. The center where he went still has to prepare this 'made to measure' shoe. He was a bit disappointed, but in the meantime, he can go back home and be with his family! Let's keep him in our prayers during this waiting time! Photo of Gregoire

Jun 10, 2016

During the consultation, the doctor decided that on Monday, Grégoire will go to a specialized center in Niamey to get an orthopedic shoe which will help him to walk better. He is looking forward to have this new shoe! Photo of Gregoire

Jun 08, 2016

Now that Gregoire has recovered from his surgery, he is back in his own room to continue the healing! This will take a bit more time. Please keep praying for him as his hip needs to be straightened a little more. Photo of Gregoire

Sep 28, 2015

Our little boy struck a pose this morning with Khadija, his little cousin! His mother went home for some time and his aunt came to watch over him, bringing with her this sweet baby girl!

Sep 17, 2015

Today, Gregoire needs to go to the X-ray room so that the surgeon can determine how much more time he needs to stay with us! But, first, the nurse opened his cast in order to see the scar on his hip. Gregoire was so scared by the tool we use to open the cast, but he admitted later that he felt no pain! Scary, but not painful! Photo of Gregoire

Sep 14, 2015

Gregoire came back in the ward today because the medical team will take off his cast and check to see if his hip is healing well.

He’s such an encouragement! Photo of Gregoire

Aug 20, 2015

Aug 11, 2015

Gregoire still needs to rest in the ward. Yesterday, he thought that maybe he would get to go back home soon but the doctor said that he should stay here to be sure he will get the care he needs. We can’t be sure he will receive good care in his town. It’s better for him to stay, so he can heal quicker! Please keep him in your prayers! Photo of Gregoire

Aug 10, 2015

Our boy had his cast changed last week, and after the removal of the old cast, there was a wound on his left hip. The doctor checked the X-ray to make sure there wasn't a pin causing it, and then dressed up the wound. Please continue praying for Gregoire's quick recovery. Photo of Gregoire

Gregoire was quite fine today! He had a heavy surgery, and he still needs to rest a lot, but the pain has subsided a bit, so thanks so much for praying! Photo of Gregoire

Jul 01, 2015

Gregoire had a hard time yesterday when he woke up. His cast made him so uncomfortable, and so the nurses made sure to give him some more medicine to help with the pain and recovery. Today he received a get well card, but as he’s quite loopy, we gave it to his mother Kifalba, who was very happy to receive it on behalf of her son! Please pray for him! Photo of Gregoire

Jun 30, 2015

Gregoire had surgery today! His hips weren’t on the same level, so the surgeon put some metal pins in the top of his left leg to realign that hip and achieve a better balance. Now his legs will be more similar in length. Everything went smoothly! Praise God! Photo of Gregoire

Jun 29, 2015

Gregoire first came to CURE 4 years ago and now he’s back! The surgery he needs is quite delicate, because his foot need work, but his hip is dislocated on that side. Doctors are deciding the way forward and we’ll keep you updated! Photo of Gregoire
