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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Ismael's Story

Ismael was born with his little finger and his ring finger stuck together. A year ago, he received a surgery from a local hospital to release these fingers, but the surgery was not successful. During his "healing process" things actually got worse and he developed some skin contractures. These contractures force Ismael's fingers into permanently bent positions making his hands even more useless.

Ismael's mother Rachida learned about CURE Niger through a friend who had her son treated at our hospital. Even though Ismael's mother was preparing to go back to her village as Ismael's school is resuming, she cancelled her trip and decided to bring Ismael to our hospital. She knows that his healing will have a huge impact of his future. Ismael is also smart and can catch up on a few weeks of missed school work. Rachida is very happy with the warm welcome she received from our CURE Niger team and prays that her son recovers very soon!
