Completely cure, care for and restore one person affected by leprosy, like Niran.
Like Niran, a little boy in India. Niran’s mother passed away when he was 9 years old leaving his leprosy-affected father unable to care for him and his brothers and sister. To make things worse, after moving to live with his older brother, Niran discovered that the patches on his skin were not simply a skin condition, but were in fact leprosy.
Terrified, little Niran was put on a 12-month course of medication to cure him of leprosy. Unfortunately the treatment came too late to prevent the telltale signs of leprosy taking hold.
It is very sad to see someone so young already having suffered so much.
Niran’s hands have come clawed, making it difficult for him to perform even simple everyday tasks like eating, or holding a pencil. The patches on his skin have spread, and nerve damage also means he cannot fully close his left eye, leaving it vulnerable to infection.
"I stopped going out to play with my friends. I'm so scared they will find out I have leprosy." Says Niran in despair.
Through your kind support and God’s love, leprosy-affected children like Niran can become miracles in themselves, as we cure, care for and restore one person at a time. Together, we can give Niran's story a much happier ending.
When you become a Cure One supporter, you will have the incredible experience setting someone like Niran completely free from leprosy.
The process involves medicine; desperately needed hospital care; and assistance to restore the person back to their community, through education and/or training for a livelihood.
If you require any assistance you can call Kiri within business hours on 0800 862 873. She will be more than happy to organise your payments over the phone, or send you out the appropriate forms.
