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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Imane's Story

"I don't like having to think about it all the time," Imane tells us betraying the self-consciousness that lies just under the surface of this strong and proud young woman. When Imane was just a child, she was running around with the other children at the feast to mark the end of Ramadan, a very big celebration here in Muslim Niger. As most of the cooking is done outside, the children's playing often spilled over into the vicinity of the cooking fires. All it took was one moment where Imane's feet moved faster than her body to change her carefree life. She put out her hand to catch herself as she fell and it went straight into a pot of boiling cooking oil. The burns were instantaneous and bad. Fortunately, the family lives in Niamey, the capital of Niger, where there is better access to healthcare than most places, but even with their resources, Imane's hand healed imperfectly. Our young lady loves going to school and interacting with her friends, but is always conscious of her burns and contractures which have proven an easy target for the school bullies. She does her best to hide her hand, but her differences are never far from her mind. Thankfully, Imane's family heard about us here at CURE Niger through a recent advertisement campaign we ran and came to us, wondering if we could help. Now that Imane is with us, we will be able to release the contractures. Her hand will still have a few marks of the burn, but it will be fully functional and help to instill new confidence in this incredible young lady!

It's been a short visit for Imane this time around! The doctors saw her this morning and said she's good to finish up healing at home. Just like last time, we'll be seeing her again shortly for regular bandage changes and wound cleanings! Photo of Imane

Imane's surgery went well! The doctors were able to free her fingers down at the base where they connect to her palm. It was a longer surgery than usual due to all the small details, but all is good thank the Lord! Photo of Imane

Apr 04, 2018

Imane is 100% healed up from her first surgery and has returned for a follow up surgery that will give her a little more flexibility and mobility in her hand. She's got a great attitude about being back and we are happy to have her!

Imane stopped by for a bandage change and wound cleaning today! After she was done, she stuck around for our Christmas party, along with her brother. We loved getting the chance to share the Christmas story with them and why it is so important! Photo of Imane

Imane was adamant we take another photo of her before she got discharged this morning! She pulled in two of our other CUREkids, Djamila (L) and Rachidou (R), who she's become friends with as well! Photo of Imane

Our little lady is no worse for the wear after her surgery! She's already up and moving around the ward, really just ready to go home, but we have to keep her just a little bit longer! Photo of Imane

Imane's surgery went wonderfully and you can see our anesthesiologist, Dr Diane, waking her up after the surgery finished. The doctors separated all of her fingers, bandaged her up, and sent her back to the ward to heal up! Photo of Imane

Imane is in our ward and ready for her surgery. She seems peaceful and confident, but surgery is never fun. Please be praying for strength for her and wisdom for her surgeon! Photo of Imane
