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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Seyfoulaye's Story

"When the other women saw Seyfoulaye's cleft lip, they did not let me go to the well to fetch water if he was with me. They think he is cursed and they could catch it themselves. So in order to get water for my family, I had to leave him at home" Saa, Seyfoulaye's mother, said to us. Saa was shocked to see another one of her children born with a cleft lip. Seyfoulaye's older brother, Sofiane also had a cleft lip and they had found treatment for him here at CURE Niger. Since she already knew what to do, Saa got on a bus and came back to us. We are really excited that they are here and that Seyfoulaye will get the surgery he needs. When he leaves us, he will do so with a new lip and a new future, able to accompany his mom to the well and participate in life uninhibited. Please pray for Seyfoulaye as he starts his healing journey!

Today Seyfoulaye got some friendly post-op advice from Salamatou, a member of our spiritual team - "Seyfoulaye!" she said, "I counsel you to drink your mother's milk - it's good for you!" Seyfoulaye, like a lot of cleft-lip babies, is hesitant to breast feed right after surgery - but it's important for him to get the nutrients he need so the wound can heal quickly. We're so happy our spiritual staff looks out for our patients' physical well-being too! Photo of Seyfoulaye

It took Dr Issa less than two hours to transform Seyfoulaye's cleft-lip into a whole one. We thank God for the power this surgery has to change this little baby's future! Photo of Seyfoulaye

Seyfoulaye is ready for surgery! The pesky cold that kept him waiting for the past few weeks is gone and he's been admitted to the ward. Please pray the cleft-lip repair goes well and he recovers quickly! Photo of Seyfoulaye

Saa tells us Seyfoulaye is still a little sick, but doing much better than he was last week. He had been rescheduled to get his surgery this week, but had to be rescheduled again as he is not yet 100%. He doesn't seem to mind all the delays as it means he gets to keeping playing around with the other babies at the guest house! Please join us in praying he continues improving so he can get his surgery next week! Photo of Seyfoulaye

Seyfoulaye weighed in and is finally heavy enough to receive surgery! The bad news is, during his pre-op check up, our doctors discovered he has a small cold. It's not a big deal, but he can't have surgery until that clears up. The nurses have him on some cough medicine which should clear him up in no time! Photo of Seyfoulaye

Seyfoulaye is always hanging around with his mother. He is slowly gaining weight, but not quite where he needs to be just yet. Please be praying his weight gain continues and he'll be healthy enough to get his surgery soon! Photo of Seyfoulaye

Jan 23, 2020

Seyfoulaye is here at CURE Niger! Since he is a little underweight, he will be staying at our guesthouse until he gains the weight the weight needed for him to get surgery safely. With three hearty meals a day, he will soon be a healthy weight! Please pray for him as he gets all the nutrients needed for his surgery. Photo of Seyfoulaye
