Your gift will ensure children in Papua New Guinea receive the treatment they desperately need before it’s too late.
Meet Lily. She’s 12 years old, orphaned, and now living with her uncle in the slum area of Port Moresby – no place for a child to grow up. She has already lost two toes, and she has a ugly swollen ulcer on the sole of her foot which has damaged her skin and compromised the bone.
Lily feels sad because she thinks her foot looks ugly. She has trouble walking and the ulcer will not go away. Sometimes she wraps it in an old piece of rag because her family has no money to buy a new bandage. But that’s not much protection when you live in a slum.
But Lily needs so much more than our anger or tears. She needs our support and care to cure her leprosy, heal her suffering and give her some hope for her future. The damage to Lily’s leg is permanent. Her dropped foot and the loss of sensation on the sole of her foot means she will need to take care for the rest of her life – and her foot is at risk of amputation.
With your help we can stop leprosy from continuing to destroy Lily’s young life. We can ensure she receives the medicine and support she needs to overcome this crippling disease.
