Leprosy is stealing away childhoods in PNG.

Heizen’s story is not unlike that of many other children in Papua New Guinea.

Heizen lives in a poverty-stricken area with his mum. He used to go to school, enjoyed learning and especially playing touch rugby with his friends.

But his world fell apart when he was diagnosed with leprosy at just 10 years of age. 

His left hand soon began to claw, and his elbow grew numb. He found it hard to perform even simple tasks.

To make matters worse, Heizen’s friends teased him, and he felt too ashamed to go to school any more. He hasn’t been to school in the past 12 months.

With your help we can prevent leprosy from destroying the lives of children like Heizen.

Heizen wants to write again. He wants to play sport again. But most of all he just wants to help his mum.

Without a cure and ongoing care, Heizen’s hand will continue to claw. He’ll never be able to do even simple tasks… for himself or his hardworking mum.

The situation is urgent. Leprosy in PNG is on the rise. One third of all new cases diagnosed are young children – some are as young as five. These children need hope and healing.

God helps to multiply our blessings. And your gift today will help children like Heizen.

You will be offering hope for generations to come – to cure, care and restore the lives of people living under the shadow of leprosy.

With your help we can prevent leprosy from destroying the lives of children like Heizen, and so many others like him.

You will help ensure children like Heizen receive the medicine and care they need to defeat this disease. You can stop leprosy from stealing childhoods!

Your gift will help:

  • Provide Multi-Drug Therapy to cure a child like Heizen with leprosy.
  • Train local health workers to find, treat and cure children with leprosy.
  • Provide leprosy care and treatment before it’s too late.
  • Help end leprosy transmission among children!

Christ cured leprosy in His earthly lifetime. Today He is calling us to end it in ours.

Please give whatever you can to help a child like Heizen today.
