Thank you for giving hope during this COVID-19 pandemic! People affected by leprosy are even more vulnerable now than ever before. Many live in close living quarters crowded housing, in makeshift shelters within poor and dangerous settlements. Thank you for giving hope to people like Phisto (pictured above, left) and his younger brother Lawrence.

Thank you to everyone who prays for and supports people affected by leprosy in Papua New Guinea (PNG). It has some of the most remote places on earth, however with support from people like you we can reach people to share your love and generosity with them.
