Good News! Your gift is worth five times more!


YOU CAN GIVE BACK A CHILDHOOD THAT LEPROSY HAS STOLEN

SET SOMEONE LIKE YAHRAH FREE FROM LEPROSY. 

MAKE YOUR DONATION TODAY.

Yahrah was only 4 years old when her mum first noticed a light patch on Yahrah’s skin. Yahrah recalls:

“My mum thought it was

a mild skin infection at first,

and treated me with local herbs.

As the years went by

the patches increased,

and I felt no sensation in them.”


You already know the tragedy of leprosy.You understand it’s not just the physical damage and disfigurement and disability leprosy can cause …

… it’s the pain of rejection by a community that doesn’t understand – and can’t look past the disease to see the person.

PLEASE DONATE 5:1 BY THURSDAY 30 JUNE. THANK YOU!

NO CHILD SHOULD SUFFER
A CURABLE DISEASE LIKE LEPROSY

Your 5:1 action goes to work through
a 3 Step Program of The Leprosy Mission:


SPOT

People in poor communities with undiagnosed leprosy

TREAT

Leprosy with Multi-Drug Therapy and ongoing medical care

STOP

Leprosy spreading with contact-tracing, raising awareness and screening

When your Leprosy Mission team told Yahrah and her mum that treatment could heal the little girl’s leprosy …

… and treatment was FREE because of kind people like you

… both mum and daughter broke into smiles! Now, Yahrah looks forward to being able to go
to school, and growing up to take her place as a strong young woman in her community. When families like Yahrah’s call out for help, God uses you to be His hands of healing.

This is your gift to a child with leprosy!

THANK YOU!

Thank you again for everything you do for people with leprosy through The Leprosy Mission, and especially now as you help children like Yahrah with your 5:1 donation.

May I leave you with these words of encouragement from the Psalms in the Bible:

LORD MY GOD, I CALLED TO YOU
FOR HELP, AND YOU HEALED ME.

PSALM 30:2 (NIV)
