You can bring healing and hope every month of the year,

through the power of Total Leprosy Care.

Bishal’s friends won’t play with him – their parents won’t let them.

His father told his mother not to come home – accusing her of passing on a “disgusting” disease to their son. His mother, Lalsari, believes she’s being punished by God.

Because of leprosy.

Bishal is sad and hurt at his father’s rejection. He’s angry at the villagers who look down on him.

And he desperately misses his little sister, who lives with his father. Bishal never sees her any more.

Because although both Bishal and his mother received Multi-Drug Therapy (MDT) for leprosy, they have struggled with reaction to the medication.

Reaction causes Bishal to feel pain all over his body every day. His skin is blistered and swollen with lesions. He often suffers from a fever.

Bishal and his mother need not only treatment and physical healing, they need to be free of the stigma of leprosy!

It will likely take a number of years of support to help Bishal and his mother overcome the leprosy reaction. To help them heal emotionally from the trauma and stigma of leprosy. Then they will need ongoing monitoring in case reaction returns.

That’s why your regular gift as a TLC Giver is so very important.

What is Total Leprosy Care?

Total Leprosy Care (TLC) starts with diagnosis of the infection and typically cures the disease and rehabilitates the patient.

This is not where TLC ends, however; sadly, the cure does not wipe out the stigma associated with the disease, and so TLC continues to provide the right support for the individual to readjust and live a happy and productive life. This can be a long and painstaking process that needs ongoing support.

The Total Leprosy Care program will give hope, encouragement, and practical support to a person affected by leprosy. As a TLC Giver you will touch the lives of the world’s poorest through your support of TLMA’s ministry of tender loving care.

Your regular gift will provide TLC for leprosy-affected mums and children through:

✔ Screening and contact tracing to diagnose leprosy as early as possible – so children like Bishal are identified as early as possible.
✔ Healing through MDT and treatment for complications like leprosy reaction.
✔ Counselling to recover from the emotional trauma and stigma of leprosy.
✔ Educating communities so people like Bishal and his mum receive support not stigma!
