YOUR URGENT ACTION IS VITAL!
Your gift today will help more children like Sameer who are suffering the effects of leprosy...
“When my legs became weak,
I could not play with my friends.
I have so much time at hospital, I cannot do my studies.
I felt so weak and incomplete.
This is when I become depressed and feel hopeless.”
Sameer, 13 years
Like any 13-year-old, Sameer should be outside with friends, laughing and shouting and running around …
… but his hands are clawed from leprosy, and he has a drop-foot so severe he can no longer play the game he loves – soccer.
Please give your urgent life-restoring donation NOW for a child like Sameer in India in danger from leprosy! I know you have a special heart for people with leprosy in India.
I’m sure you would want to know about the crisis COVID is causing in India for children with leprosy.
The fact is hospitals are stretched as the new COVID variant spreads, and struggle to continue to provide leprosy treatment.
The danger is people with leprosy are pushed to the end of the line for their essential treatment – if they get it at all.
Every day counts when treating leprosy!
The miracle healing of Multi-Drug Therapy (MDT) requires consistent treatment. If a child like Sameer misses out, the threat of needless permanent disability and disfigurement increases as does the risk of leprosy spreading further through communities, especially the poorest villages.
That’s why I ask your urgent action today! Thank you!
