Community leaders, pastors, nurses and health workers are on the front lines of the fight against disease, disability and poverty.
They are going out in their communities, finding people suffering from leprosy and related diseases. And they are making sure these marginalized people get the cure and care they so desperately need.
When diseases like leprosy are diagnosed and treated early, we can prevent lifelong disabilities. So people on the ground, in their communities, need to be equipped to recognize diseases and know how to help.
Your generosity equips and empowers thousands of people in Côte d’Ivoire, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Liberia, Ghana, and India.
Your gifts train:
Nurses and midwives to diagnose and properly treat diseases before they worsen.
Pastors and church leaders to recognize diseases and know they can be cured.
Women leaders to advocate for better health and sanitation in their communities.
Community volunteers to find people in need, refer them to health centers and combat stigma.
Medical supervisors to manage disease complications and prevent disability.
Your support helps deliver health care where it’s needed most, making sure people on the front lines have the knowledge, tools and skills to meet the needs in their communities.
Thanks to you, people suffering from leprosy and related diseases are being diagnosed and treated before permanent damage is done. They are receiving affordable, quality care. And they are being restored to lives of dignity and hope.
