Maya's leprosy began as small wounds on her skin. Festering and oozing, they scarred her face. A local clinic said it was just a rash, but when Maya's hands seized up and bent like claws her mother knew it was leprosy.
Leprosy-panic swept through their village. Maya lost all her friends, and she was pressured into stopping school.
The social stigma at its worst, tragedy struck this family again as they were left homeless as floods destroyed their house.
Light in the Darkness
Thankfully, Maya was referred to a Leprosy Mission clinic nearby where she was diagnosed with leprosy. Maya's diagnosis broke her mother's heart. This family had been through so much already as leprosy weakened her father so badly that he died of tuberculosis.
“When these bad things happened, we worried we may not afford treatment for Maya's leprosy," says Maya's mother.
Maya needs to take daily antibiotics to cure her leprosy.
"I want to go to school," says Maya.
Today you have the power to Cure One like Maya.
What a wonderful way to achieve a world without leprosy. One child at a time.
