Your support can make a world of difference to people affected by leprosy.
In Papua New Guinea, where right now a quarter of people may have Covid - 19 and the threat of leprosy is an ancient ever-present fear.
This is why Rose has suffered so much.
"Why can't they stop pushing me out, with their mocking words and their teasing?"

She says the pain and the scarring are not the worst things 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 heartbreaking for a child to hear such vile words.
Your support today means our Papua New Guinea neighbors 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.
