How does the Hope Doll help cure leprosy?

Leprosy is more than just a physical ailment. For many children it can mean losing friends, family, and even being kept from school.

Your donation does more than just cure a child.

It sends a medical worker into communities to find and diagnose children, and provide them with the medicine to cure the disease before physical disabilities happen.

Each child will receive a Hope Doll with your donation. The Hope Doll is more than just a toy, it is a symbol of hope for the future and a reminder to the child that someone in Canada cares.
