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 is a 4-year-old boy and has arrived to CURE Niger with his mother Adama. She is the mother of three children of which Ismael is second born. At the age of two years old, his mother brought him to stay with his grandmother because she had a difficult pregnancy. One morning, Ismael's grandmother took him to a doughnut seller to buy some doughnuts. Unfortunately, Ismael fell into the boiling oil used to fry the doughnuts and sustained burns to his hand. After the accident, his parents gave him traditional treatment for three months. After that, his wound healed but the skin on his hand became contracted. Not long ago, Adama heard about CURE Niger from a woman whose child was treated here and she decided to bring her child too. Please join us in praying for Ismael's healing!

Slowely but surely Ismael is progressing. He was back today to hang out with our physical therapist who made a new brace to make sure Ismael's fingers stay extended and don't regress! Photo of Ismael

We are happy to have met Ismael in the bandage change room for his bandage change! He has been discharged and seems to be playing a lot since his bandages are really dirty!

Please continue to pray for his full recovery. Photo of Ismael
