Your gift will ensure children in Papua New Guinea receive the treatment they desperately need before it’s too late.

Your support can help provide a miracle for children like Thresia

Jesus did miracles with five loaves and two fishes… He can do wondrous things with your gift too.
Because children like Thresia need a miracle of hope and healing…

Meet Thresia. At eight, Thresia was diagnosed with leprosy. She’s stopped going to school because she’s so afraid of being teased.

The sad thing is, the disease is only mildly contagious… but Thresia lives in conditions that encourage the spread of leprosy. A tin shack is her home.

Thresia already has an ulcer on her foot due to nerve damage from leprosy. It causes her to limp. If left untreated, Thresia is at risk of losing her whole foot by amputation.

Instead of going to school, Thresia helps her father.

He is a fisherman. After he catches his fish early in the day, she walks around her village selling the catch.

Imagine doing limping with your load of fish in the searing heat. While struggling with an open ulcer on your foot… and missing out on your education.

Thresia needs a miracle of hope and healing. So do the rising number of children – some as young as five – who are contracting leprosy in Papua New Guinea.

You have an amazing opportunity today to reach out and do something life-changing for Thresia– and so many others like her in Papua New Guinea.

Your gift will ensure children receive the treatment they desperately need before it’s too late.

The Leprosy Mission is one of the only organisations fighting leprosy in PNG.  Just as Jesus did wondrous things with loaves and fishes, your gift will be used to bring healing and blessings. Your gift will help provide care and treatment such as Multi-Drug Therapy (MDT), reconstructive surgery or physiotherapy.

Please GIVE NOW. Children like Thresia are waiting for their miracle of healing.

This Appeal is our big chance in 2019 to continue the fight against leprosy in Papua New Guinea, and we simply cannot achieve this without your generous support. With your help today, children like Thresia can be cured and given hope, where before there was none. So please, donate today.

Together we can cure and protect her – and others like her – from the ravages of this terrible disease. Thank you.
