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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Imarane's Story

"His life will change forever because, today, he can only dream of being clubfoot free, but tomorrow he will live it!" Issaka, Imarane's uncle, tells us. Imarane is a 10-year-old boy that has had quite a few rough years. He was born like any normal… Read more

"His life will change forever because, today, he can only dream of being clubfoot free, but tomorrow he will live it!" Issaka, Imarane's uncle, tells us. Imarane is a 10-year-old boy that has had quite a few rough years. He was born like any normal kid. His life was going pretty well until, in second grade, he got sick with malaria. His parents took him to a local hospital where he got a shot in his thigh to treat the illness. Everything seemed fine until, after a few months, his parents started to notice his right foot was not growing at the same speed as his left foot. It turns out that the shot he had received hit a nerve, damaging it and was slowly deforming his foot. Unfortunately, his friends also noticed the growing discrepancy. They made fun of him every chance they got. They called him gourgo (legless). "Some of them don't mean it. They just do it because, if they don't, they will get laughed at too. I would have done the same thing in their place," Imarane admits with all sincerity. His parents hated seeing Imarane being mocked so they began looking at where they could get help. As hard as they looked, they could not find a solution. Then, one day, a CURE Niger outreach team was in a city near their village and Imarane's mother happened to pass by where we had stopped and were telling people about the healing we offer. Imarane's mother was skeptical at first because she never thought that there would be a day like this. She thought that her son's condition could never be cured and yet, now that they have made the trip to CURE Niger, they are on the path to healing!

Imarane has made it back for his follow up appointment and he is SUPER proud of how flat his new foot sits in his shoes! While things are already so much better than they were, the doctors say we're not quite home yet and Imarane will need another surgery. Our man will be coming back in June for a consultation with some visiting orthopedic surgeons and we'll make the plan from there! Photo of Imarane

Imarane is here with us at CURE Niger! We are excited to meet him. He is a quiet young man, but when he got to know us, he was very good at expressing himself. He is very excited to be here and excited about this new chapter in his life! He is such a delight to have around. Please pray for him as he goes into surgery. Photo of Imarane
