World Leprosy Day
Every year, on the last Sunday of January, people around the world participate in World Leprosy Day. On this day, we remember and pray for those negatively affected by leprosy. We also use World Leprosy Day as an opportunity to raise awareness about leprosy. Many Canadians believe leprosy wass an ancient disease that was eradicated long ago. World Leprosy Day helps to dispel that myth.
