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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Amatoulaye's family believes that her cleft lip was ordained by God, but they struggle to understand why. When Amatoulaye was born, they were initially shocked to see her lip split. Thankfully there was a nurse at the local medical clinic that assured Amatoulaye's family that cleft lip was a very treatable condition, but that Amatoulaye would need to grow and gain some weight before she got her surgery. In the years since then, Amatoulaye's family have done their best to love and shelter Amatoulaye as they are painfully aware of how those with disabilities are treated in Niger. Now the time has finally come and they have made their way to us here at CURE Niger where Amatoulaye will finally get the surgery she needs to heal her lip. Amatoulaye's family still doesn't understand why God gave them, out of all the family's in their village, a child with a cleft lip, but they are simply thankful to God for providing a way to get her treated!

Amatoulaye is back! She's healed up incredibly well from her cleft lip surgery and we're now looking forward to her cleft palate surgery. Unfortunately, she's a little under the weather at the moment so we've given her some medicine and she'll be staying in our guesthouse as she heals up and becomes healthy enough for her next surgery!

So Amatoulaye wasn't able to arrange transportation until today so she's still here and leaving tonight. We were completely ok getting a little more time with this little angel. One of her friends from the guesthouse is going in for surgery so she spent the morning visiting his mother in the ward! Photo of Amatoulaye

Amatoulaye is going home! Once she got the good news, she was going around saying goodbye to everyone. It wore her out so, by the time she got to saying goodbye to us, she was fast asleep! Photo of Amatoulaye

Amatoulaye is back and waiting for her wound cleaning today. It's important to keep it clean and free of infection, but look closely, her lip is already looking so good! Photo of Amatoulaye

After having the weekend to heal up, Amatoulaye is looking great and her mom says she's doing great as well! If you look closely, you can see the stitches in her lip and that liquid is a disinfectant that gets applied every other day in order to keep her lip clean and infection free as she heals up! The doctor checked in on Amatoulaye this morning and said she's healed up enough to be discharged! She'll still have regular cleanings so we'll still be seeing her around! Photo of Amatoulaye
