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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Ousmane greets the world with a skeptical face as he's starting to figure this whole life thing out. What he hasn't really wrapped his still small mind around just yet is that he was born with a cleft lip. It's a relatively small condition, but in a country like Niger where differences are a social death sentence, it could come to define his life. Those with disabilities in Niger are often relegated to margins of society, hidden away or utilized as beggars in order to contribute pennies to the survival of their family. Thankfully, Ousmane's parents brought him to a local health clinic. The clinic couldn't help Ousmane themselves, but they knew about us here at CURE Niger. Wasting no time, Ousmane's mother has brought him here to us where he will receive the surgery he needs to close up his lip and open up his future!

As planned, Ousmane made it back for his lip cleaning today. He's still got that same skeptical face as when we met him last week, but without a cleft lip this week. The lip cleanings are important in order to keep the surgical wound from getting infected AND while Ousmane was waiting, he got to pray with our spiritual staff as they went around greeting everyone!

Ousmane and Rahana spent some time with Aicha from our spiritual department today before this little man got discharged! He'll be back next week to have his lip cleaned, but we're so glad he gets to spend the weekend in the comfort of his own home with his own family! Photo of Ousmane

We're amazing at how strong this young man is! Just one day after surgery, he's completely calm and has hardly cried at all. We know his amazing eyes can be distracting, but check out how good that new lip looks! Photo of Ousmane

Ousmane no longer has a cleft lip! This little guy received his surgery today. Dr Issa and the surgical team did a great job of sewing Ousmane's lip up, removing his cleft completely. You could see Rahana was pretty nervous the entire time her son was in surgery, but she help it together wonderfully and was overjoyed when Ousmane came back out to her! Photo of Ousmane
