Her fingers had already clawed.
And with loss of sensation due to leprosy, she couldn’t feel heat. So when she picked up hot items in the kitchen…
Horrendous burns which led to infection. Leaving Alina with shortened fingers.
This young girl also had patches and burns all over her body. And nerve damage around her eyes meant she could no longer blink away dirt and dust.
Alina was in danger of going blind.
Alina’s father left home as soon as he discovered Alina had leprosy. He never returned.
What a tragedy when leprosy is curable!
If only Alina had received the right treatment when she first saw the signs of leprosy at age 9…
But Alina’s Heavenly Father will never abandon her.
In the Bible, it says, “Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you” (Hebrews 13:5). God has a plan for Alina…
When Alina first tried to seek treatment for leprosy, she was given the wrong medicine.
She often cried, feeling bad because she had leprosy.
First came Multi-Drug Therapy to cure leprosy. Then she had surgery to restore function to her clawed hands.
Another operation on her eyes means Alina will retain her sight. The Leprosy Mission staff bound her wounds and cared for her while she healed.
Instead of stigma and rejection, Alina experienced the love of Jesus!
