A below-the-knee prosthesis restores a person’s ability to move freely, and overcome barriers such as stairs, and rough landscapes. Your gift restores a person’s mobility and independence.
Buruli Ulcer Care
Buruli ulcer is a disease that creates painful
open sores on the skin. People with this condition are often feared, rejected and excluded from social activities. Your gift helps treat people affected by Buruli ulcer.
People affected by leprosy can develop complications which affect their nerves. Steroid medications are prescribed to treat complications and reduce the risk of permanent nerve damage.
Lymphatic Filariasis Care
Lymphatic filariasis is a disease that causes extreme swelling and pain in the legs, which often leads to permanent damage. This gift allows a person to receive essential care to continue daily activities with confidence.
Hand and Foot Surgery
Skin NTDs like leprosy often result in complications, including the loss of a hand or foot. Your gift will pay for surgery to reverse deformities and disabilities, so people can thrive.
Give the gift of sight! Nerve damage caused by leprosy can lead to permanent blindness. Your gift pays for the reconstructive surgery that can help prevent this devastating loss of sight for one person.
Self Care Supplies
Locally sourced hygiene items such as bandages, gauze, oil, soap, and pumice stones allow patients to practice daily self-care and heal wounds quickly. The appearance of healthier skin improves a person’s self-esteem and dignity.
Antibiotics and Antifungal Meds
Essential bandages keep ulcers and other wounds clean and protected, while preventing further infection. Bandages also apply pressure to swollen limbs to reduce inflammation and relieve pain.
Leprosy causes nerve damage to hands and feet. If a person cannot feel the pain of a cut, their foot may become infected, or even require amputation.
This disability may prevent a person from working, leading to extreme poverty. Shoes can restore a person’s life!
Protective shoes help prevent injuries and protect a person’s mobility, livelihood, and independence.
Support a Small Business to Restore Livelihoods
Often, people recovering from disease and disability need to find a new way to earn a living. A small business is a great option for people who need a fresh start.
When you invest in a small business, you break the cycle of poverty, and bring new hope to future generations.
Support A Small Business
Small businesses often need to buy supplies, repair equipment, or even purchase new tools. Your gift will support an existing small business, to continue providing an income for the family.
Support A Shoemaker
People affected by leprosy often have feet with an irregular shape, and they can’t buy shoes at a regular store. Your gift helps provide training for shoemakers, so they can design and make customized shoes to protect feet from injuries, infections or the loss of a limb.
Educate A Child
Personal school supplies are essential for each student. Give the gift of a school supplies kit, including notebooks, paper, pens, pencils, glue, geometry set and markers.
Children are required to wear uniforms in the countries where we serve. Sadly, many parents can’t afford uniforms for their children. Give the gift of a school uniform, so a child can stay in school.
