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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Eight months ago, Yasser and his mother were in bed for a little siesta. His mother quickly dozed off while Yasser had a bit more trouble falling asleep. Eventually he gave up and got up to go play in the courtyard of their house. While he was playing, he accidentally fell into the still very hot center of their extinguished cooking fire. His cries of pain woke up his mother, but his fingers were already badly burnt before she could get to him.

Yasser's mother immediately took him to the hospital where he received treatment. Today, the wounds have healed, but in a way that force Yasser's fingers into a bent, claw-like position.

His father, having learned through one of his colleagues that his child's case is treatable by CURE Niger, brought Yasser to us. Yasser's father says he is very happy with the warm welcome he received and hopes that we will be able to fix his son's rights.

Let us pray that Yasser's treatment will be a success!

Grandma has been taking good care of Yasser. We are happy to see him in better shape today compared to last week when he suffered malaria (a common and treatable disease in Niger during rainy season.) Feeling all better, Yasser is ready for today's therapy session! Photo of Yasser

Yasser has just finished his bandage change. Because his wounds are healing very quickly, he is no longer afraid of the bandage change but comes out with big smiles on his face! He is also continuing his physical therapy with Sodogas and it is progressing well. Let us continue to pray for Yasser. Photo of Yasser

Yasser has had his surgery! From the look on his face, he seems to be doing fine post-op. During the procedure, Dr. Anthony released the burns on Yasser's fingers and took a skin graft from Yasser's stomach/hip area to cover the newly-extended fingers. Yasser's surgery was pretty small so he's already been discharged! We'll see him again later this week for a bandage change. Please keep praying for him as he recovers. Photo of Yasser
