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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Safia's Story

“Our neighbors do not say anything, but they are always watching, staring, and sometimes laughing,” Safia’s mother tells us. When she was only five years old, Safia’s legs began to bend outwards and, while people told her family that the legs would correct themselves, they never did. Safia has struggled to walk and has suffered the judgment of her community for an aspect of her life that she has no control over. Thankfully, one of our CURE Niger outreach clinics took place in a nearby town and our message of healing reached Safia. This young woman has now made her way to our hospital where our medical staff will straighten her legs and send her home standing tall!

Safia came by for another follow up appointment. She got her cast off and the doctors are excited about how her leg is looking! She's been instructed to start walking without her walker and we'll see her again in three months to see how she's getting on! Photo of Safia

Safia came by for her first follow up appointment of the new year! She had her cast taken off and the doctor checked her over. While she is indeed healing, her leg isn't yet strong enough to go around cast free. She had another cast put on and she'll be back again in March. Our little lady wasn't exactly pumped about still being in a cast, but she is nothing if not patient and understanding. We're super thankful for her attitude about the whole process! Photo of Safia

Safia stopped back in for her follow-up appointment today. She got her cast off and her leg is healing up nicely although it is still fragile. She had a new, smaller cast put on and went on her way. It was a great little visit with this wonderful young lady, and we were pumped that we got to deliver a bunch of your get well messages to her! Photo of Safia

Safia is in a little pain, but she is resilient and tough. We asked her how she is feeling today and she dismissed us like it was nothing. We love this little woman and all her sass! Photo of Safia

Praise the Lord! Safia's surgery was a success! The doctors went in and removed a triangular chunk of her leg bone, which essentially allowed them to break the leg straight. It's not a small surgery, so please keep Safia in your prayers as she's going to be in some discomfort as she wakes up and recovers. Photo of Safia

This will be Safia's second surgery here with us and although she's gone through this process once before, she's still rather nervous. Please be praying that her nerves will be calmed, and that she will be strengthened as she sets out on this next step towards healing! Photo of Safia
