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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"She's my third child, but the first one with a lip like this" Ina, Nana Fatchima's mother, tells us with confusion still thick in her voice. After giving birth to and raising two healthy children, Ina was shocked when Nana Fatchima was born with a cleft lip. "I had never seen anything like it before" she says. The confusion about her daughter's lip soon gave way to despair as they had to endure to the silent judgement of those around them. Nigerien culture is one that values conformity and those who are not like everyone else, such as people with disabilities, tend to be cast to the outskirts of society. Thankfully, Ina and Nana Fatchima made the journey to Niger's capital where a passerby noticed Nana's lip and told Ina about the work we do here at CURE Niger. Wasting no time, Ina brought Nana to us and they have now been admitted for surgery. Nana will receive the surgery she needs to correct her lip and will leave with a future wide open and full of possibilities!
