Completely cure, care for and restore one person affected by leprosy, like Kanti.
Kanti, a delightful 13 year girl in India.
To understand Kanti's story we must realise that her young life has not been easy. Her father works as a packer but it is three days' travel from home. He sends money back to the family from the little he earns. It also means Kanti only sees him once every two years when he has a chance to travel back home.
Kanti's story started five years ago, when Kanti's mum Sarita realised there were discoloured patches all over Kanti's little body. It was not until later when an ulcer developed on the sole of Kanti's right foot, that she took Kanti to the local hospital.
Kanti was diagnosed with leprosy. Because of delayed treatment, Kanti has developed drop foot on her right leg. The family was devastated by Kanti's situation.
Leprosy is one burden too much for someone who is already suffering from poverty, like Kanti - and her family.
It is saddening to see a young girl have her life disrupted by this terrible disease.
Through your kind support and God’s love, children affected by leprosy like Kanti can become miracles in themselves, as we cure, care for and restore one person at a time. Together, we can give Kanti's story a much happier ending.
