The child mortality rate for children under-five is almost 10% of live births. The health care systems in Niger are extremely poor and most Nigeriens do not have access to them or the means to pay for appropriate healthcare.
- Pray that the people of Niger would come into relationship with the Great Healer.
- Pray that lives would be valued in Niger and that this country would be transformed into a country that works to preserve the lives of their little ones and makes sacrifices on their behalf.
