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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Firdaoussi's Story

"Firdaoussi is my daughter and like every mother, I want to see my daughter completely healthy" Nana Hinda, Firdaoussi's mother, told us. When Firdaoussi was still a baby, she had an injection. They didn't realize it at the time, but it hit a nerve… Read more

"Firdaoussi is my daughter and like every mother, I want to see my daughter completely healthy" Nana Hinda, Firdaoussi's mother, told us. When Firdaoussi was still a baby, she had an injection. They didn't realize it at the time, but it hit a nerve in her right leg. Soon after, her leg started to swell up and when they took her to a local clinic, the medical staff put a cast on her leg. Unfortunately, this just made the injury even worst. In the year since then, Firdaoussi cannot straighten her leg and cannot move around easily to help around the house. The kids near her home call her gourgoi or "the crippled one" in the local language. Thankfully Nana Hinda's cousin found out about CURE Niger when he brought his daughter here for treatment. When he went back to the village, he informed Firdaoussi's family about CURE Niger and they're now here for treatment! We asked Firdaaoussi what she wants to do when she is completely healed and she said she wants to pound millet (local food like corn that women use big sticks to crush into a cornmeal like substance) like all the other women and girls.

Today Firdaoussi and the other patients heard a story about Jesus and some children - Jesus' disciples were trying to shoo the kids away, but he insisted the children come near. We want to make sure Firdaoussi knows that Jesus wants her near as well because he loves her oh so very much! Photo of Firdaoussi

Today Firdaoussi was watching the Jesus Film with the other patients and their guardians. She enjoys watching it because they don't have a TV back home and the stories are fascinating! Please continue to pray for her as she both heals and plays here at CURE Niger! Photo of Firdaoussi

In between crafts, activities, and general horsing around, we caught Firdaoussi during a lovely, calm moment. It looks like life at the guesthouse - where she is still recovering from surgery - is suiting her well! Photo of Firdaoussi

The cast change and leg repositioning went well for Firdaoussi! Once it was complete, the doctors said she can be discharged! Since she lives pretty far away from the hospital, she'll be staying in our guesthouse as she recovers. She isn't quite back to 100% yet so please join us in praying for her!

Firdaoussi is going back to the OR for a cast change today! The doctors are going to take her cast off and reposition her leg now that it's had a few days to heal a little, and then put a new cast on. If she was awake, this would be super painful so she will be asleep during the whole process. Please keep her in your prayers! Photo of Firdaoussi

Firdaoussi is now recovering in the ward! She went for an x-ray to make sure that her bones are still resting in the right position as they heal. Her spirits are a little low due to the post-op discomfort so please be praying for her! Photo of Firdaoussi

This young lady has had her surgery! The doctors were able to successfully straighten her leg. They then fused her knee straight. This means she won't be able to bend it much, but she will be able to put weight on it and walk on it which is a HUGE improvement from where we're at now! Photo of Firdaoussi

Firdaoussi is here in the CURE Niger ward! She has been staying in the patient guesthouse for a bit, but she is finally ready to go into surgery. " I am not scared because I will be healed," Firdaoussi told us with a smile. Photo of Firdaoussi
