Neglected no more - because I matter.

Thank you for your decision to give a gift to help support and heal someone this Christmas.

People suffering from disease like leprosy, Buruli ulcer, or lymphatic filariasis are too often forgotten and the simple gift of antibiotics, a cane, bandages, or hospital supplies make a world of difference as they heal and learn to live with new disabilities.

Thank you for remembering them this Christmas.
