Neglected no more - because I matter.

As we watch our 225 Canadian athletes compete on the worlds stage during the Olympics & Paralympics let us remember that through every injury and falter they had the support of their community. Not every person is so lucky. People in countries where there is limited access to health care are often left disabled as a result of their battle with leprosy and other diseases of poverty.

Your gift today will provide physical rehabilitation for patients in order to allow them to regain use of their body and restore their sense of physical well-being. Let’s restore the lives of 225 people, one for each of our Canadian athletes!
