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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Amou's Story

"If Amou does not get this surgery, she will continue to grow up in an atmosphere of rejection and this is not good for a child of God," Rabi, Amou's mother, tells us with absolute sincerity. Amou was born with a cleft lip and is the first person with a cleft lip to ever be born in her village. Rabi firmly believes that Amou is a gift from God, but this doesn't stop the other villagers from whispering about the possible reasons Amou was born like this. In a country where homogeneity is valued above most everything else, being born different puts Amou in a dangerous situation. Thankfully, a CURE Niger mobile clinic took place near Amou's village and a local health worker encourged Rabi to bring Amou. Our medical staff saw Amou and was able to share the hope of healing with her. Amou has now made her way to our hospital where she will indeed receive the surgery she needs to fix her lip and place her in an atmosphere not of rejection, but of love, acceptance, and hope!

Amou's cleft lip isn't all that severe which means her surgery was a nice and quick one! The doctors cleaned up the edges of her cleft with a knife and then were able to sew the two straight edges together to reconstruct her lip. Amou is back in the ward now and should be waking up from the medication soon! Photo of Amou
