Your support can make a world of difference to people affected by leprosy.
In Bougainville, 25% of all leprosy cases are children.
David, a Village Health Volunteer, has been battling the Goliath of child leprosy in Bougainville for many years now. Thanks to your support, great progress is being made. Children are being cured of their leprosy before the disease causes permanent disabilities.
That wonderful progress has been at risk, because pandemic restrictions have delayed a vital shipment of the MDT medication that cures leprosy.
I am pleased to tell you that the shipment has arrived just in time. If you will support David in getting MDT to families like Cherimillah’s, their year-long cure can be completed.
Covid is another Goliath blow for Bougainville. Please don’t let Covid-19 stop leprosy from being cured.
