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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Abdoul's Story

“I saw this place as an opportunity for my son to get healed,” said Aicha, Abdoul’s mother.

It was eight months ago, on a rainy day, in the upper room, when Abdoul’s life changed. He was three-years-old and was having lunch with his little sister. It was raining heavily, and suddenly, the roof crumbled into pieces under the weight of the water. Some of the pieces plunged into a big pot filled with hot water and splashed onto Abdoul’s face and arms. He was burned instantly, and the wounds were deep! Aicha hoped they would heal by using some traditional, local creams. When she didn’t see any improvements, she took Abdoul to the local hospital.

Unfortunately, the local hospital was unable to help, and Abdoul’s arm began to bend as the skin contracted and became rigid. One day, Aicha was listening to the radio and heard that a CURE mobile clinic was visiting their village. The hope started to fill her heart again, and she took the kids for a consultation. By the time she arrived, she had missed the clinic. Nevertheless, she kept asking around about CURE. She finally received an answer from a local doctor who told her that CURE Niger is located in Niamey. Aicha did not waste any time, and the next day she was on a bus, riding across the country with her two little children, heading towards CURE Niger.

Aicha has arrived at CURE Niger with Abdoul and has a deep assurance in her heart that he will get the healing they desperately yearn for. Let’s pray that God will transform their circumstances into something good. May Abdoul’s accident become a redemptive story and testimony of God’s glory and grace!

Abdoul will not leave our ward until he has played with all of our cars! Today, he chose a white one, and of course, it had to be a large car! He is doing well and soon will return to our guesthouse to continue his recovery. It is wonderful to witness Abdoul's physical healing and his inner personality bubbling out! When he came to us, he was a shy boy. Since then, he has become a chatty, funny boy who doesn't hesitate in saying to us, "Take a photo of me!" Please continue to pray for Abdoul's recovery!
