About Effect Hope

Globally, 1.7 billion people are affected by neglected tropical diseases (NTDs) like leprosy. They are the world’s most underserved people and communities. NTDs don’t just cause illness and disability, but they destroy livelihoods and tear families apart. These diseases seed discrimination and isolation. Neglected tropical diseases trap people in a cycle of poverty.

As followers of Jesus, we cannot stand by and let people suffer needlessly from treatable and preventable diseases. God calls us to intervene in this broken world as agents of restoration and hope. We work with our committed supporters here in Canada and our partners in the countries where we serve to be champions of hope.
