What am I giving to?

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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Nana is a 14-year-old girl. Her mother, Hadiza, told us that when Nana was two years old there was an open fire which she was preparing breakfast on. Hadiza left her unattended for a couple of minutes and during that time in her absence, Nana crawled in the fire and was burned. There was no one there to help her, she cried and screamed until her mother hurried back and pulled her out of the fire. She decided to take the child to a health center, but Nana's grandfather refused and ordered that she be given a traditional treatment with the powder from the bark of a tree. The treatment lasted three months, after which the wound healed but the hand contracted. Last week there was a CURE mission to Maradi for consultation, Nana's mother heard about the mission and decided to bring Nana for the consultation. After the consultation, Nana, accompanied by her mother, followed the team to come to the CURE Niger hospital for the operation needed to correct her hand. Please join us in praying for Nana's healing!
