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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"I am not scared, just excited," Habsou tells us, her million dollar smile beaming! Habsou was born like any other baby and was a welcome addition to the family. It wasn't until Habosu began to walk that her parents noticed something was wrong. Her legs were slightly curving outwards. Habou's father was convinced that the legs would straighten with time, but, in fact, they only got worse. Habsou was taken to a local health clinic and even a government hospital only to be told, over and over again, there was nothing that could be done for her. It wasn't until a CURE Niger outreach team visited Habsou's village that she learned she could indeed be healed. Habsou and her mother have now made the long trip to CURE Niger where she will get the surgery she needs to not only walk, but also run as she has only dreamed of up until now!

Well Habsou's new cast was short lived because at her doctor's appointment today she found out that she is completely healed up and ready to go home! Just look at those straight legs! Photo of Habsou

It's about time Habsou got a new cast as she's worn more than a few holes in it! She'll soon get a new one, but while she waits she's passing her time coloring in our art therapy room! Photo of Habsou

Aug 07, 2018

Our spiritual team got out a bunch of toys for the kids to play with. Habsou had to awkwardly seat herself on the bike since she still has her big cast on, but she was determined to have a good time! Photo of Habsou

Aug 02, 2018

No medical procedures for Habsou this week, just regular old healing. But she took part in a small knitting class put on by our spiritual staff today and she took to it like a fish in water! Photo of Habsou

Jul 25, 2018

Habsou is passing the time by having her mother re-do her hair. It's a long process, but she's got plenty of time! While she was getting her hair done, we read her a whole slew of your get well messages which she loved. Thank you for loving this little one. She and her mother don't understand why you all care so much (we explained to them it's because of Jesus), but they feel so loved because you do! Photo of Habsou

Jul 18, 2018

Habsou got to join in on a little culinary lesson today with a visiting volunteer (pictured). They made no-bake coconut cookies (in the plate) and then went around the hospital sharing them with everyone! Photo of Habsou

Jul 16, 2018

Habsou came back for her follow up appointment and it just so happened to be near the time of our CURE Niger fashion show, so she got to participate! On the medical front, she is healing up nicely, but isn't all healed just yet. Right now, she's been scheduled for another follow up appointment in late August. Photo of Habsou

May 14, 2018

Habous's mom got their bus tickets sorted out and Habsou left for home over the weekend! She'll be missed, but she'll be back soon for her follow up appointment. Please continue praying with us that she continues to heal up well!

May 10, 2018

Habsou has her crutches and is more than capable of walking around the hospital herself, but she just loves the wheelchair and talking people into pushing her around! Photo of Habsou

May 09, 2018

Two things today: 1) Habsou took part in some group art therapy where they made crowns while learning that God is the High King and, as his children, that makes us princes and princesses! 2) Habsou will be heading home soon! There's no reason she needs to be in our guesthouse and a local bus company has donated tickets to take her home so we're working those details out and she'll be leaving shortly! Photo of Habsou

May 07, 2018

After the weekend of healing, Habsou was discharged this morning! She was all smiles as she got carried out. Since she lives pretty far away, she'll be staying in our guest house for a little bit and we'll still be seeing her around! Photo of Habsou

May 04, 2018

Habsou had a visit today from a visiting radio DJ from the USA! He's here to learn about CURE and then help raise funds so we can do even more surgeries like Habsou's! She loves the attention and he was able to get a few HUGE smiles out of her which is pretty impressive seeing she's still pretty sore from her surgery. Photo of Habsou

May 03, 2018

Habsou got her surgery and everything went great! The doctors had to work on two sections of her leg, one below the knee and one above. They took a few chunks out of the bone which allowed them to position the remaining bones straight. They then put in a few pins to hold everything in place, closed up her leg, and casted her up! Our little lady is back in the ward and resting up now. Photo of Habsou

May 02, 2018

We had a chance to sit down with Habsou this morning and we asked her what she's most looking forward to when she is healed. She responded "gudu shap shap" or "run really really fast"! We're happy she's here and can't wait to help her achieve her goal! Photo of Habsou
