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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"I'm not sure what I want to be when I grow up," Zeynab shyly admits to us. "I never thought I'd be anything, but a beggar." With the lack of assistance for and the ostracization of those with disabilities in Niger, it is a heartbreaking reality that many of them will never amount to anything more than begging in order to scrape by in life. Zeynab has begged in markets since her legs first began to bow out when she was around three years old. It was in one of these markets that several CURE Niger staff found her. They quickly located Zeynab's grandmother and informed them that we can treat Zeynab's condition! Zeynab has now made her way to our hospital and is ready to take her first step to a new future filled with so many possibilities!

After her cast change, Zeynab opted to stay in our guest house here at CURE Niger because she lives a good distance away and has no family here in Niamey. We just need to keep an eye on her for a bit as we determine if she'll need any more adjustments or if she'll be good until her follow-up appointment in a few weeks! Please be praying for wisdom for the doctors and patience for Zeynab and her mother! Photo of Zeynab

Zeynab is back with us just for the day in order to get a small leg adjustment and cast change! It was scheduled last week, but we missed the memo. Our apologies for the misinformation, but we're always happy to see her smile around here! Photo of Zeynab

Our little Zeynab was feeling on top of her game and was discharged today! She'll finish healing up at home and we'll see her in a few weeks to check on her progress. Please continue to pray for her that the words she's heard about God during her time here will take root and she'll come back even more curious about our ultimate Healer! Photo of Zeynab

Only a day after surgery and Zeynab has an absolutely massive smile on her face! She's got a fair amount of healing left to do, but step one is now complete! Photo of Zeynab

Sep 06, 2017

Zeynab's surgery went exactly as planned! The doctors were able to essentially remove a triangle of her bone which allowed them to "break" her leg straight before sewing and casting her up. Zeynab is in some pain now, so your prayers for a speedy healing process are very much appreciated! Photo of Zeynab

Sep 05, 2017

After years of begging on the streets, we are PUMPED to welcome Zeynab to our hospital in order to straighten these bow legs out! Will you join us in praying for her throughout her time here? Photo of Zeynab
