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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I want to become a computer engineer,” said Ibrahim and we see the light in his eyes sparkling as he shares this desire of his. He continues to laugh while his father joins in the discussion and starts sharing their story with us. Ibrahim developed knock knees condition when he was only two years old, after he previously contracted fever. He was taken to the hospital outside his village. Ibrahim received no diagnosis and he was discharged home. His knees continued to tilt inwardly during the following years while his ankles remained spaced apart. Fifteen years have passed by and no visits to any hospital, no treatments taken. According to the local tradition, it is seen as God’s will for Ibrahim to be like this. He still went to school and had friends to play with. At home, Ibrahim helps his parents running their peanuts business, he roasts and packages them in small bags ready to be sold after. Three months ago, Ibrahim heard on the radio that a CURE mobile clinic was passing by through their village. Together with his family went for a consultation. Our doctors advised them to come to CURE Niger hospital and now here they are!
“Everything you need you will find at CURE,“ says Ibrahim. He was impressed by the way he was welcomed, by the professional manner of our doctors when he was consulted and by our nurses and spiritual team care while staying in the ward.
After Ibrahim gets the surgery he will continue to help his father run his business, save some money and buy a computer. What determination and drive he has!

Ibrahim and his father didn’t return to their village as was previously planned. Our staff decided that it would be better for them to stay around to continue his recovery with us. He is very ambitious, and he is combining his recovery time with learning a new language - Romanian. Ibrahim wrote his first Romanian sentence on his cast, ”Dumnezeu ma iubeste” (God loves me). A truth that he admitted he is experiencing here at CURE through the love and care our staff is showing to him. Please pray for Ibrahim's time here to be fruitful for his soul and body!
