A new approach to care

Dear friends,

I’m so excited about the foundations laid during 2015. The advances made by effect:hope are gaining international recognition for their innovative approach to diagnosing, treating and rehabilitating people with leprosy and other Neglected Tropical Diseases.

Many of the achievements outlined in this year’s annual report are startling in their own right – but they’re just the first steps in revolutionizing care.

The team at effect:hope in Canada have collaborated with partners around the globe to create new approaches to old problems… and they’re producing better results.

The work in Liberia is a fascinating example of how working with integral partnerships can give the promise of hope for the children, women and men who have been forced to the margins of society because of poverty and disease.

I am grateful for the leadership of Peter Derrick and his passionate team. As I see what’s already been set in motion throughout 2015, I look with great anticipation to the work ahead of us in the coming year.

Thank you for your faithful support.

As we come together, we see people who once struggled for the very basics of life finally gaining access to proper care.
This is an achievement that few words can describe – I believe God is opening doors to miraculous opportunities for effect:hope and the people we serve.
