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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Rahina's accident happened six years ago when she was just four years old. She was playing outside when she had the idea to blindfold herself and see if she could still get around. Unfortunately, while walking, Rahina fell into the traditional cooking fire, badly burned her hands. To make matters worse, when the accident happened there was nobody else in the house. Her loud cries of pain alerted a neighbor who ran to her rescue. With no hospital nearby, Rahina received traditional medicine for her burns which ended up resulting in the melted skin healing in ways which force her fingers into permanently bent positions.

Rahina's parents learned about CURE Niger many years ago through a local hospital, but because of financial constraints, they weren't even able to afford the transportation here. But as Rahina grew and her disability began to inhibit her more and more, they knew they had no other choice. Life was so tough, Rahina dreamed about cutting her fingers free herself with one of their kitchen knives. Thankfully through hard work and sacrifice, Rahina and her mother are now here are CURE Niger and Rahina will get the surgery she needs to free her fingers and open up her future!

Rahina's mother told us that when she set her feet into this hospital, she was really touched by the warm welcome that she has received from our staff and some of the fear she had began to vanish. Her prayer is that her daughter's surgery will be successful and that she may live her life without any constraint!

Rahina has been doing great. So great that she was discharged by the doctor to continue her recovery at home. As she was leaving very early this morning, we were happy to have met her sitting with her mom at the front gate of the hospital before they caught their ride home. Please be praying for her until we see her again! Photo of Rahina

Rahina's surgery went well and her fingers are now straight (although wrapped up in bandages)! We found her this morning in the ward sitting next to her mother. Rahina is feeling a little pain from her surgery wounds but our nurses have it under control. Please, keep this young girl into your prayers! Photo of Rahina
