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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Fati was just two years old when she accidentally dunked her hand into a pot of boiling water her mom had been heating to eventually warm Fati's bath. Fati's mom had momentarily left the pot in order to fetch more water and in that brief moment, Fati's life changed. Fati's screams brought her mother running back, but the burns to Fati's hand were instant and bad. Their local hospital was able to help Fati heal, but they weren't able to prevent Fati's melted skin from healing over the inside of her knuckles, making Fati unable to straighten her fingers.

In the 14 years since the accident, Fati has had to struggle through not only the physical limitations of having a less than functional hand, but also the emotional stress of being different than everyone else. Her peers often laugh at her and mock her, which makes leaving the house an unattractive prospect - she spends most of her time at home.

Fortunately, just a week ago, Fati came to visit a relative who lives near us here at CURE Niger. One of this relative's neighbors saw Fati's hand and recommended she come show it to our doctors. Fati did this and was amazed that we can help her. After 14 years of yearning, Fati's life is about to change!

Fati is feeling much better. She had a great weekend and she no longer feels uneasiness during the night. Today we met her at the bandage change room and learned her wounds are healing well. Dr. Anthony also said she can start her physical therapy on Wednesday! Praise the Lord for progress! Photo of Fati

Fati is back to the ward having a rest as she gets ready to go home! She's recovering nicely and please pray she would continue to heal well at home! Photo of Fati

Fati is done with surgery! The procedure took awhile because Fati's fingers were curled in pretty tightly - "Her condition is normal because she's gone so long without surgery," said Dr. Anthony as he was performing the operation. "But it's not her fault - it's hard to find a place in Niger that can do this operation." On top of that, Fati's from a rural area, which could mean her family has limited financial means to pay for surgery. It's a huge blessing that we were able to connect with her and that now, after so many years she'll have the chance to regain full functionality in her fingers - pray that she and her older sister who are here with her would be touched by the love of God as she heals here.
