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.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"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 is back for his doctor appointment! When he went in to see the doctor he was able to see that Djibo could walk, but then he noticed that he was not walking well so the plan is to check and see about a pin removal the next time he comes back for an appointment. Photo of Djibo

Djibo got the pins taken out of his leg and is now getting ready to be discharged! We're bummed our time with him was so short, but we're pumped to see how he's progressed at his next follow up in a few weeks. Please pray for him as he goes home that all the healing goes as planned! Photo of Djibo

Djibo is back! He will be getting a pin out of his leg today. He says that everything is well and he is excited to get the pin out because it feels weird when he stands. Please pray for him as he gets it removed that everything will go well! Photo of Djibo

Djibo came in today for a doctors appointment! The doctors got him an x-ray and when it came back they saw that one of the pins in his leg had bent. Luckily, the bone is healed well and can support itself bent pin or no. The doctors were able to remove the bent pin rather easily and our little man is on his way again! Photo of Djibo

Our physical therapy team hooked Djibo up with a walker and he was practicing around the hospital today! Once he got the hang of it, the doctors told him that he's been cleared and can go home! It's an understatement to say that today was a good day. He'll be back in a few weeks to check up on how leg number two is healing up. Please be praying with us that it goes just as drama free as leg number one! Photo of Djibo

Djbo is now resting. He is a bit tired, but everything is well. He said his leg hurts a bit, but not too much that he needs attention. We are glad that everything is fine. Please keep him in your prayers so that nothing happens that will complicate his healing process. Photo of Djibo

Djibo was in surgery today and everything went well. The doctors did the same thing to his leg as they had done to the previous one, a procedure called guided growth which helps correct the growth of his leg. Please keep Djibo in your prayers as he recovers! Photo of Djibo

Djibo is back! He is done with his right leg and is now ready to start treatment on his left leg. We are happy to see him and are pumped for him to start phase two. Pray as when he goes into surgery that everything will go well and that recovery will be smooth! Photo of Djibo

Djibo managed to get himself discharged over the holidays and is working on growing back his new, straight bones! We've been missing him, but he has a follow up appointment coming up in a bit and we can't wait to see him again!

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

Nov 22, 2018

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
