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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

"The first thing I will make sure to do is for my son to go to school!" Abdoulahi's mom shares. "I don't want to see him begging again!"

Six years ago, Abdoulahi contracted fever. His mother was away from home when it happened, and nobody took him to the hospital. Soon after, he developed a condition called knock knee. Abdoulahi's legs angled inwards, causing his knees to hit each other as he walked. As time went on, it became impossible for him to walk. His leg muscles weakened, and all he could do was sit. Their local community saw his condition as a curse.

Not long after his condition developed, Abdoulahi's father died. His mother didn't have the means to provide for the family financially, and the only option they were left with was begging. Abdoulahi went to the streets begging for money, and it helped them put food on the table. Abdoulahi's mother married once again, and her husband sent Abdoulahi's picture to a nurse. The nurse forwarded it to our spiritual staff at CURE Niger and an appointment was established for Abdoulahi.

Abdoulahi is now here at CURE Niger, and he is getting ready for surgery. May God's healing and grace be upon him. Please join us in welcoming Abdoulahi to the CURE Children's Hospital of Niger!
