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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Koubra's Story

“When you are happy in your heart, you smile with your teeth. Koubra is now smiling with her teeth,” Koubra’s mother tells us, a toothy smile appearing on her own face. Koubra’s mother has given birth to ten children, but five of them have died due to various diseases and infections. So, when a small sore appeared on Koubra’s leg, indicative of a deeper bone infection, just over a year ago and commenced growing, the entire family was terrified they may lose their little girl. Koubra’s mother carried Koubra all over their region, visiting a total of five different hospitals. Each hospital they visited was not equipped to treat the bone infection, so they were not able to help Koubra. They had all but given up hope. Thankfully, CURE Niger hosted an awareness mission in the market where Koubra’s mother works. Information was exchanged, and mere days later, Koubra showed up at the CURE Niger doorstep after her entire village contributed money to get her here! Now that she is with us, our medical staff will go in and clear out the dead and infected bone, prevent any spreading, and send Koubra home with her future secure!

Koubra's surgery was a little more involved than expected, but everything worked out well! The doctors went in into her thigh and removed all the dead and infected bone and tissue. The unexpected part was just how much of it was in there. After the removal, the whole area was flushed and sewn back up. During the surgery, the doctors found evidence of a small fracture, which is most likely how the infection started in the first place! Photo of Koubra
