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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Adamou's Story

’’I want to be a motorcycle rider,’’ exclaimed the nine-year-old boy, Adamou, while playing with a yellow car in the ward. Adamou was born with a leg deformity where the lower part of his left leg bows outwards. Like many other kids his age suffering from various disabilities, he was mocked by those around him - calling him ‘’disabled.’’ Despite the mean words, he continued to play with children of his age and go to school. Adamou’s parents brought him to a hospital four times to be treated but every time they got the same answer, ’’Nothing can be done!’’

One day, while they were back home in their village, a woman told them about CURE Niger. She had been here (her child had previously been treated by CURE staff), and she strongly advised Adamou’s parents to bring their child here to CURE Niger. Adamou’s father was (and still is) fighting a serious health condition, but he didn’t hesitate to send Adamou to us. With fresh hope in their hearts, Adamou’s parents sold their goat so they could pay for the trip to the hospital.

Adamou will soon have surgery to straighten his leg. When we asked him what he wants to do when he gets home, he told us, “I will go to school!’’

Adamou’s operation was more complex than usual due to his previous fractures. Nevertheless, the surgery was a successful one. The doctors straightened his leg out, and they also took a biopsy of a tumor that has been causing some of the problems in his leg. Now, he is back in the ward starting his recovery journey! Please be praying for strength for him, good results from the biopsy, and wisdom for our doctors. Photo of Adamou

Adamou’s mother is excited by what is going around them in the ward, but Adamou is still trying to adjust to his new setting. He was both hesitant and surprised when the nurses took his temperature. Thankfully everyone is doing their best to put him at ease and he will soon receive his surgery! Photo of Adamou
