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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Hassana's Story

"The other girls at school use my foot against me in arguments. It makes me hate them because there is nothing I can do," Hassana tells us, her emotional pain evident in her strong words. When Hassana was just three years old, her foot began to deform. She soon found herself unable to lay her foot flat and walked around with it permanently in a "tip-toe" position. She doesn't remember ever walking normally, but her family tells her stories. She only knows the pain, both physical and emotional, that her condition brings her. She dreams of going to school and being able to focus solely on her education rather than the taunts of her peers. Thankfully, Hassana found out about us here at CURE Niger when one of our radio advertisements played on her radio. Daring to hope, she has now made the journey to our hospital where our surgical staff will fix her foot and will have her walking out of here with her head held high and her foot flat!

Hassana is a happy soul today. She is laughing, having fun, and making jokes! We are happy to see that she is enjoying herself! Hassana and Ema, from our spiritual staff, were making jokes about Hassana’s friend Aissa - about her gold tooth. Pray for Hassana that every day is as fun and happy as today so that she will not be homesick as well as make other peoples days filled with fun like she made Aissa’s today! Photo of Hassana

Hassana has had her surgery today! The doctors released some of the tendons in her foot in order to lengthen them. This will prevent her heel from being pulled up and she will be able to walk properly again! Photo of Hassana

"I'm not afraid, I'm excited about (the surgery) in fact. I'm happy I'm going to get healed!" says Hassana (R). We are overjoyed to have Hassana and her big smile around. She is such a happy person to have and is already making friends in the ward. Photo of Hassana
