Your support can make a world of difference to people affected by leprosy.
Your gift will be MULTILPIED 5X today.
In PNG, where right now a quarter of people may have Covid - and the threat of leprosy is an ancient ever-present fear.
This is why Rose has suffered so much bullying, fear and rejection.
"Why can't they stop pushing me out, with their mocking words and their teasing?"
Your vital support today will be multiplied FIVE TIMES:
She says the pain and the scarring are not the worst thing about her leprosy.
"The worst thing is being teased at school. Kids would call me names like Gudu-gudu."
That means Swollen Skin. It is heart-breaking for a child to hear such vile words.
Rose suffered heart-breaking abuse, rejection and bullying because of leprosy.
Please keep other children safe from what Rose has suffered. Your support today means our PNG neighbours have better access to clinics, medication and education about leprosy - with better livelihoods for their families.
This great work among our leprosy-threatened Pacific neighbours would be impossible without help like yours.
Donate today. Your kindness will be multiplied FIVE TIMES* to stop leprosy spreading in PNG.
