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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Habiba's Story

"I want to be able to play," Habiba tells us, her shy voice barely audible. "Play without everyone looking at me." While some little girls dream of stardom and all eyes on them, Habiba dreams of a life of blending in, a life where she is not a spectacle because of her disability. Habiba was born with disfigured legs - one is knocked in while the other is bowed out, giving her a windswept and permanently off-center appearance. This mere physical difference relegates this little lady to a life of burden and shame in a culture where those who are different are not welcome. Thankfully, Habiba's mother had the foresight to give her a name that means "beloved" as she is fiercely loved by her family who have turned the world over trying to find healing for their child. After years of searching, a small health clinic was able to tell Habiba's family about us here at CURE Niger. Habiba and her grandmother have made the journey here to our hospital. It will be a long process to sort out Habiba's legs, but one that will revolutionize her life. When it is done, Habiba will walk out of CURE Niger on straight legs, knowing she is not only beloved to her family, but also by us and, most importantly, God.

Habiba's grandmother was able to figure out some transportation home for the two of them and they left early this morning. We're a little bummed we didn't get a proper goodbye with them, but we're pumped Habiba gets to go home and we're excited to see her when she comes back in a few weeks for her follow up appointment!

Our little lady has had a pretty slow week. She's just been hanging around the hospital while learning to walk with both her new cast and new walker. She's got a great attitude about the whole ordeal and we just ask you be praying for her as she goes through all these adjustments! Photo of Habiba

Habiba had a good weekend. She's started off this week with a trip to the x-ray in order to make sure everything is still where it needs to be. Her leg looked good and the doctors say she can be discharged! Since she lives pretty far away from the hospital, she'll be staying at our guest house for the time being. Photo of Habiba

We got to spend some time with Habiba this morning. She's feeling pretty rough as we all would after such a major surgery, but, ultimately, she is doing well. She'll need to stay in the ward for a few more days to make sure there are no complications, but she is on her way to healing! Please be praying for strength and determination for this little lady!

Habiba's surgery was long, but straight forward. The doctors took out a wedge of bone which allowed them to essentially break her leg straight before putting in some hardware and casting the whole new leg up! Surgery is never fun, but she should be able to heal up from this one pretty fast! Photo of Habiba

Habiba has been admitted to the ward. She's a little hesitant with her new surroundings, but she's ready to get started! The doctors have decided to tackle her right, knock-knee first and, once that's complete, we'll take a look at that left, bow-leg of hers! Photo of Habiba
