Stigma runs deep
Facial scars from Henry's cured leprosy will fade, but the branding wounds of stigma burn far deeper - right to his heart.
*5X your gift to help set people free from leprosy.
Henry is a bright 11 year old who loves school and playing with friends. He was devastated to be told h could no longer attend school because of his condition.
Henry is not alone in this struggle. Many children and adults living with leprosy face the same discrimination and exclusion daily.
Yet, 48 hours after beginning his year of medication, he was no longer contagious. He did not need to be expelled.
It was only because of the stigma that Henry was kicked out of class. Such a cruel blow to a child in PNG: education is precious to his future.
Join us in setting people affected by leprosy free from the fear and stigma that has banned Henry from school.
