Completely cure, care for and restore one person affected by leprosy, like Hasan.
Like Hasan, a little boy in Bangladesh. At just 9 years of age, Hasan discovered that the white patches on his leg were the beginnings of leprosy. As their community turned against them, it was a devastating time for Hasan and his family.
Hasan’s family live in a small tin shack among a tiny cluster of houses. Their house has one room, corrugated iron walls and dirt floors. There is little in the way of hygiene, or hope.
Hasan's father cannot work due to injury. His mother is forced to dig soil for a living with a pick axe that is almost bigger than her. It’s backbreaking work for very little pay.
As a result, Hasan eats two bowls of rice a day if he’s lucky. There is rarely any vegetables or meat. He is very small for his age.
Such extreme poverty brings with it the danger of leprosy breeding and spreading easily.
Without the love and generosity of wonderful people like you, Hasan would end up with painful clawed hands.
But together we can give Hasan's story a much happier ending.
When you become a Cure One supporter, you will have the incredible experience setting someone like Hasan 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.
