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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Souleymane is shy little guy with a glint of mischief shining in his big, dark eyes. What you can't immediately see is that Souleymane was born with an incurable condition called brittle bone disease. This means that Souleymane's bones just aren't as strong as a normal child's and can break much easier. He first learned of his condition when he was walking around his village and tripped. This little accident was enough to break his leg. With no medical care facilities nearby, Souleymane was carried back home and put on bed rest until his leg healed. Unfortunately, Souleymane's mischievous side got the better of him and he tried to walk before his leg was healed. In the process, he ended up breaking his leg yet again. Now with two breaks, Souleymane's leg lay at an unnatural angle and still with no access to medical care. The family could do nothing but sit and watch as his leg permanently healed in this position. The breaks have rendered Souleymane's leg useless and made him a spectacle in his village. Thankfully, when Souleymane's family took a trip to spend some time with his grandparents, they saw his misshapen leg and immediately told his parents about us here at CURE Niger. Souleymane is now here with his grandmother and while we cannot heal his brittle bone disease, we can fix his leg and give him a second chance in life!

Discharge day is today! We caught Souleymane right as his mom was carrying him out and he was waving his discharge paper like a trophy! Photo of Souleyman

The pins have been shifting in what was thankfully a quick and straightforward procedure. Here you can see the doctors consulting the x-ray as they position the pins. Souleymane did great throughout the whole process and is healing up now! Photo of Souleyman

Souleymane is back for his pin shifting! He's all smiles and ready to get this pin moved in to a more comfortable position! Will you be praying with us that the procedure goes smoothly, relieving his pain, and making this smile even bigger (if that's even possible)? Photo of Souleyman

Souleymane came in for a quick checkup today. So quick in fact that he left before we could get a photo of him! The doctor says Souleymane has healed up nicely, but the pin that we had to place in his leg has shifted slightly and is causing him some pain. He'll be coming back in a little bit to be put to sleep so the doctors can reposition the pin in his leg!

Souleyman stopped by for his follow up appointment today. The doctors say his leg is healing nicely! He got his old cast off and a walking cast put on as he's been instructed to start walking on it. Our little guy is on his way again and we'll see him in one month's time! Photo of Souleyman

Mar 13, 2018

Souleyman is all smiles as the doctors told him he gets to go home today! We love having him here, but are so excited for him! Please continue to pray with us for his on-going healing and recovery! Photo of Souleyman

Mar 12, 2018

Dr Jean Francois and the medical team say Souleyman is doing well and should be able to go home soon! Not today, but soon. While we do our best to keep the hospital fun, it does get boring and Souleyman is excited to go home to his family and friends! Photo of Souleyman

Our little guy had the chance to visit with Emanuel from our spiritual staff today. They had a good little chat about how he's doing and why we do what we do here! Photo of Souleyman

Mar 08, 2018

Souleymane is still a little under the weather, but we did catch one of those million dollar smiles out of him (although we didn't capture a photo of it). He seems most content to hang out in bed and just rest at this point in the recovery process. Photo of Souleyman

The rod reposition was a quick and straight forward surgery. With no complications, Souleymane was in and out in no time! Thank you for your prayers as he went through this procedure and please keep them coming because the hard work for our little guy starts now as his body recovers! Photo of Souleyman

Mar 06, 2018

Unfortunately, Souleymane is back with us. The rod we put in his leg last time has shifted meaning it won't be able to do it's job and we have to reposition it. It's never fun getting a second surgery, but this will just be a small one and Souleymane doesn't seem at all phased by it! On the plus side, we're so excited to get to spend some more time with this bundle of joy! Photo of Souleyman

Jan 12, 2018

Souleymane's smile is back! He's feeling miles better today! The pain is receding and he's getting used to having a cast on his leg. The doctors say he's doing great as well and he can go home to finish up the healing process! We'll be seeing him in a few weeks for his follow up appointment. Photo of Souleyman

Jan 11, 2018

Souleymane and his grandmother spent some time with Tante from our spiritual department today! They had some good talks and a good time of prayer. Overall, Tante just wanted to let them know that they're not alone in all of this. Medically, Souleymane's body is doing what it should be. Emotionally, he is a little muted. He's still a tad uncomfortable, but getting better! Photo of Souleyman

Jan 10, 2018

Our man is still a little out of sorts. It's not exactly a fun experience having a rod put in your leg. Every day will be a little easier though. If you could pray with us for strength and determination for Souleymane, that would be much appreciated! Photo of Souleyman

Jan 09, 2018

Souleymane's surgery went extremely well and he is resting up in the ward! The doctors were able to essentially re-break his leg so it is once again straight. They also put in a rod to make sure the leg stays straight! As our little man grows into a big man, he will need to return and get a longer rod put in, but that won't be for another five or six years. Photo of Souleyman

Jan 08, 2018

We're pumped that Souleymane finally found out about us here at CURE Niger and has made his way here for treatment! He's a little nervous with his new surroundings, but we're excited to get to know him and to get his leg straightened out ... literally! Please be praying for strength, both mental and physical, for our little guy as he sets out on this journey of healing! Photo of Souleyman
