"It makes me very sad to see my son in this state, and to be mocked by this peers," Mansour's mother told us with tears in her eyes. Mansour is a young boy of 10 years old who lived his normal life and went to school like all the other children of his age. Two years ago, a little pimple appeared on his elbow. Little by little, the pimple became ulcerous and grew, spreading all over Mansour's arm. His mother, being more traditional, took him to the traditional practitioner who gave him a hot water massage. The next morning, Mansour's arm and forearm swelled considerably and the skin began to fall off. Seeing this, his mother looked for herbs that helped the wounds heal. The wounds did heal, but as it was healing, the skin contracted and forced Mansour's arm into a permanent bent position.
At school, his mates would often mock him or provock to wrestle, but even with the challenges, Mansour never abandoned school.
Mansour's mother learned about CURE Niger from family members who live here in Niamey. Even when she didn't receive much support the people in the village, Mansour's mother took her courage in hand and brought her son to CURE Niger because she said, "My son's life is worth everything for me."
We are so happy to see Mansour again. He's a really brave kid. He finished his exercises for today, and we can saw him coming out of the physical therapy room to go back to the guesthouse where he's staying. His health is improving well. Please continue to pray for his complete recovery.
We met Mansour at the guesthouse. He is listening to the spiritual team who are teaching about obedience to the Word of God. A question was asked to them, why as humans do we have to obey God's word? There were many answers from others who were there, but Mansour answered that it is to inherit paradise, to have peace of heart and peace with others. Please continue to pray for him that God will continue to perfect his healing.

After Mansour received a new bandage dressing from our nurse, he proceeded to the physical therapy room where the Saratou is helping him regain the mobility in his arm. Please keep Mansour in your prayers as he is continues his healing journey!
Mansour tells us he had a great weekend. He spent most of the time hanging around with his new friends at the guesthouse. This morning, we caught him while he was coming out of the bandage change room. Regular bandage changes are important to make sure everything stays clean and infection free. He's scheduled to have his next one this Friday!
Our doctor checked the progress of Mansour's wounds this morning and it was good to hear the result. Mansour will continue with the bandage change until complete recovery. Please keep praying for him!
