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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

"He can do everything, we just want him to be presentable" said Soumana's brother Oumarou with all seriousness. Djibo is a five year old that leads a normal Fulani life except for the fact that he has knocked knees. He was born with the condition, but since he was not born in a hospital and his family had never seen anything like it, they did not look for help. He does all of his duties with this condition. Everyday he is expected to go out into the wilderness with kids his age to herd the family cattle. Life went on this way, until a new family moved to their village. The family had a boy that had had a condition that was treated at CURE Niger. They told Djibo's family that this is a curable condition. Djibo then came here to CURE Niger, and we are so happy for him to begin his healing journey!

Djibo had his surgery today. Knocked knees is often from lack of vitamin D, also known as Rickets. Everything went well, the surgical team performed a procedure called "guided growth", where they chip part of the bone so they can guide how it grows. Pray for him as he recovers. Photo of Djibo

Djibo is here at CURE Niger. We are so glad he is here! Even though he only speaks Fulani he understands "Photo". He believes pictures are meant to be serious hence his straight face. Pray for him as he heads into surgery! Photo of Djibo
