Neglected no more - because I matter.

Christmas 2016

Thank you for giving so generously to people who suffer the pain and stigma of leprosy. All gifts will go to the cure and care of people with leprosy. There is still so much stigma and fear around leprosy and providing an early diagnosis and treatment can help prevent disability and restore dignity and hope for the future.

Thank you for your gift. Thank you for changing a life this Christmas.
