What am I giving to?

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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Hachirou's Story

"We don't know what caused it and why it happened," said Mariama Hachirou's mother. Hachirou and his older brother were both born with knock knees. "Everyone treated us as cursed people and would try to avoid us as much as they can," Mariama told us. Hachimou could not go to school because kids would make fun of him at any given time. They would try to knock him down because of how weak he was. Wherever Marama and her husband went looking for help they were instantly turned around saying that they do not know how to treat that condition. Everyone in their village would encourage them to either get rid of the kids or find a way to hide them from the world so that they could keep their family name clean. The whole situation has made their whole family depressed. The kids are being made fun of and excluded while the parents are berated for bringing bad kids into the world. Mariama learned about us when CURE Niger went to her village for an outreach to raise awareness. "When I heard that there may be a solution for my kids I was overjoyed because over the last years this was the greatest news I've heard!" Thank you for your part in bringing great news to this family, please join us in praying for healing, both physical and spiritual!

Ibrahim is always active! Today, we met him enjoying a tricycle ride. His recovery has improved, and his x-ray showed that his bone is nicely healing. He will be back in June for a follow-up appointment. Thank you for partnering with us! It makes a difference in Ibrahim's life! Photo of Hachirou

Ibrahim was coloring a book when we met him today. His smile says it all! He has been discharged and all is good! He will be back next week for an x-ray. Thank you for your prayers for Ibrahim. We will see him again soon! Photo of Hachirou

Ibrahim's surgery has been a successful one! The doctors cut the bone that took the tension of the hips and decreased his flexion contracture. He is now back with us in the ward. Soon, he will be smiling and playful, as he usually is! Take your time to rest Ibrahim. We are here for you! Thank you for caring for Ibrahim. Photo of Hachirou

Ibrahim is back with us for another surgery. He was all smiles! He knows that here, he will get better physically. What he also knows is that many games and activities are awaiting him. That was enough for him to get him excited! Welcome back, Ibrahim! Please pray for his healing journey. Photo of Hachirou

Hachirou got to participate in some sand art today! After that, the visitors who had brought the sand art, put on a skit. They acted out the story of the time Jesus fed 5000 people who were listening to him preach. The moral of the story that these visitors drove home was that there is nothing God cannot do, even providing them correction for their conditions! Photo of Hachirou

Hachirou went ahead and got himself discharged today! He'll be sticking around town for a few more check ups, but he was super pumped (as you can see from that smile) to get out of the ward which can be kind of boring! Photo of Hachirou

Our big man is no worse for the wear after yesterday's pin revision! He's back to his sassy self. One thing we didn't initially notice when we took this photo, but love about it is his mom's (Mariama) expression. You can tell how much she loves her son and how much joy she gets from his interactions with the world, even simple things like making faces for the camera! Photo of Hachirou

Hachirou is back in the ward and heading back into surgery! Our goofy man isn't going in for a real procedure today, just a pin revision. One of the pins helping to reinforce his leg has shifted a little and is poking into his knee. The doctors will put him to sleep and then move the pin so it doesn't poke and damage anything! It's a nice quick procedure and he'll be back to causing trouble in no time! Photo of Hachirou

Hachirou came in today to chill and play with some other patients as well as with Emma from our spiritual staff. They played the game memory together (the one where you have to remember where two tiles with the same image are located). At the end of the game, Emma asked them what the game taught them. Hachirou responded by saying that it helps him build his memory skills so he'll be even better at school when he goes back! Photo of Hachirou

Hachirou is feeling better overall, but he says his leg still hurts. He has been discharged and will be leaving the ward in the afternoon. Pray for him so that he recovers well! Photo of Hachirou

Apr 09, 2019

Hachirou had a successful surgery! It was pretty straight forward, the doctors cut Hachirou's bone in his leg and then proceeded by putting two pins in his leg after adjusting the bone to be straight. The two pins will hold the bone in place until it heals. Then they bandaged him up! He is in resting and recovering, please be praying for our boy! Photo of Hachirou

Apr 08, 2019

Hachirou is here at CURE Niger! We are happy that with your help, CURE can provide healing for him and his family. Please pray for him as he embarks on this journey to healing! Photo of Hachirou
