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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Ousseina is a 5-year-old girl who was born with congenital syndactyly on both hands, which means that Ousseina's fingers––the little finger, the ring finger and the middle finger––are joined together since birth. She has a twin sister named Hassana with the same deformity. When the twins were born, their parents were very happy to have them. "Even when they noticed the deformity, they learned to thank God for for their babies as they trust Him for their lives" shares Maria, the twins' grandmother.

Ousseina's parents learned about CURE through a relative who was on CURE Niger’s mobile clinic a long time ago. Through financial contributions of friends and relatives, Ousseina's parents were able to pay the transportation to Ousseina and her twin sister to CURE Niger. They are accompanied by their grandmother––Maria.

Maria says that she was very pleased with the warm welcome she received from our hospital when she first arrived. She prays that her granddaughters' operation will be a success.

Ousseina and her twin sister are always energetic and love to have a lot of their pictures taken. Whenever we go to the ward, they keep screaming and asking for more pictures. They love to confuse us with their names and almost never answer to their corresponding names when we call them. They are so silly yet we are glad to have them at our guesthouse and bring joy to other kids! Photo of Ousseina
