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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

"I am so happy my son is getting surgery'' Saa, Abdou Sofiane's mother. Abdou Sofiane or Sofiane as his friends call him is very energetic, and he loves to swing at our playground at CURE Niger. He was born with a flap of skin holding his middle finger on his left hand down in a bent position. He previously had a cleft lip and was treated here at CURE Niger, so Saa knew exactly where to bring him for treatment. Sofiane can do most things with his hand except holding heavy objects. He needs the support of his other hand. When we asked Sofiane what he wanted to become after he grows up, he told us he wanted to become a teacher. We are excited that Sofiane is here with us at CURE Niger, when he heals completely he will go back to school and continue on his path to becoming a teacher.

"I don't want to see my brother with a cleft-lip anymore," says Sofiane. Today his baby brother Seyfoulaye is getting the same surgery Sofiane underwent a while ago. We asked him what will change after surgery - "People will see that we are all like them," he said with confidence. Photo of Abdou Sofiane

Sofiane continued with his bandage change routine today in order to make sure everything stays clean and uninfection. He wasn't too happy at first because he thought it would hurt, but thankfully he had it changed without any pain. We pray that his hand continues to heal! Photo of Abdou Sofiane

One of the things we love the most about the CURE Niger ward is that kids who are often rejected and excluded at their homes can find other kids struggling with disabilities and make friends here! This morning we found Sofiane had befriended another patient. As this new friend was waiting to go in to surgery, Sofiane and him spent some time looking through some picture books we have around the ward. The good news kept rolling as the doctors then discharged Sofiane to our patient guesthouse where he'll stay as he undergoes regular bandage changes and wound cleanings! Photo of Abdou Sofiane

Sofiane seems to be healing up pretty quickly as he is already back to his sassy self. He was trying not to bust out laughing during this photo and he didn't last much longer than when this photo was taken! But with all his joking around, he's doing a great job keeping his hand elevated in order to decrease any post-op swelling that may happen. Photo of Abdou Sofiane

Sofiane has got his surgery! Dr. Issa released released the tissue holding Sofiane's finger in the bent position and it can now straighten the entire way! We pray he will heal up in no time. Please join us in this! Photo of Abdou Sofiane

Sofiane is here with us at CURE Niger for his surgery! Normally kids are a little nervous when they first get here, but he was laughing his head off as he was watching Underdog on the ward TV. Turns out flying and talking dogs are hysterical whether you can understand English or not! Photo of Abdou Sofiane
