Neglected no more - because I matter.

January is a time to refocus and commit to a new direction. At effect:hope we are solidly focused on ending leprosy. But we need your help.

Here’s how you can join us:

Become a monthly supporter.

Your gift of $33 a month provides the medical care to diagnose people with leprosy and ongoing support to prevent long-term disability. Your donation also goes towards teaching proper care to prevent injury, providing funds for starting a small business to become self-sufficient, and healing family and community relationships broken because of fear of leprosy.

Fight against poverty.

Through your donation today, you make it possible to make real and needed improvements to communities with high rates of disease. The reason leprosy and other diseases of poverty are rampant here is because of the poor conditions. Your gift helps provide clean water wells, toilets, nourishing food and safe shelter, a school house and teacher, and job training to provide a pathway out of poverty.


effect:hope, formerly The Leprosy Mission Canada, is a Christian international development organization focused on growing healthy, inclusive communities. With partners in 11 developing countries, effect:hope builds stronger health-care systems and champions new research initiatives that will make positive, lasting changes in the lives of millions facing stigma and impoverishment due to leprosy and other diseases of poverty.
