Murti receives proper treatment and healing


By: effect:hope


Murti is like a lot of girls her age. She loves to play with her friends, go to school and has dreams of becoming a teacher or a nurse one day. Her parents own a small plot of land in India and with hard work, they manage to care for their family, but there is no money for savings.

One day, a small patch of discoloured skin appeared on Murti's forehead. Her parents weren't worried, but then the patch wouldn't go away.

Thankfully, a team of healthcare workers were visiting her village. They found her immediately. They sent Murtito a local hospital where she was diagnosed with leprosy. Unfortunately, the hospital was not knowledgeable in treating the disease and Murti’s condition worsened. As her hand began to claw, her parents heard about effect:hope's partner hospital in Prayagraj.

Our surgical team was able to correct the clawing of Murti’s fingers and provided her with treatment and care. Today she is back in school and the family is doing well. You can support children like Murti with a Gift of Care today!
