Why Support Effect Hope?

We would love to close our doors because we’re no longer needed. Maybe someday that will be the case, but right now, 1.7 billion people are affected by neglected tropical diseases worldwide. 

That’s 1 in 5 people.

They are the world’s most under-resourced people and communities. They live with avoidable and preventable illness and disability. These diseases destroy livelihoods and tear families apart. People affected by these diseases face discrimination and isolation. Neglected tropical diseases trap people in a cycle of poverty.

That’s where you come in. The problem may seem too big to solve. But, each day life is getting better for many people affected by these diseases thanks to people like you.

Your donations ensure that the people and communities we serve will overcome neglected tropical diseases. Your generosity means that they can have their life back.

Most of the people affected by neglected tropical diseases, like leprosy, are some of the world’s poorest. COVID-19 has brought many of the people we serve to the edge of disaster. 

Our biggest challenge right now is continuing our programs during a pandemic. Many people we support are at a higher risk of contracting COVID-19 due to their compromised immune systems and living situations. They also continue to experience a significant loss of income due to pandemic restrictions. We are thankful for our partners who continue to serve despite increased personal risks.

We are also thankful that you continue to provide access to vital health services, and help individuals overcome discrimination and ultra-poverty. Because of you, they are reconnecting with their families and loved ones. Thanks to you, the people we serve together can continue to hold fast to the gains that they have worked so hard to build. 

Donate a one-time gift now or super-charge your donation and become a monthly donor to provide reliable support throughout the year. Your generous donation change the lives of people we serve and impacts future generations. Thank you!
