Heal people like Shanne from leprosy reaction
This World Leprosy Day, act now to save a life like Shanne’s.
Shanne couldn’t sleep at night because of pain… her heart sank each day as she faced this ugly experience. She would cry so loud that her neighbours could hear her scream in pain and frustration.
“… My eyes are shut I cannot see because they are so swollen. Sometimes I could cry because my skin is dry, causing painful cracks…”
Your urgent gift needs to get to people like Shanne in time. Otherwise, Shanne could suffer irreversible nerve damage. She may be overwhelmed by sadness and pain. For people like Shanne, we need to act quickly before it’s too late.
Shanne is suffering from ‘leprosy reaction’, a painful inflammation in the nerves caused by leprosy bacteria.
It causes sudden unpredictable swelling, blisters and disfigurement in the hands, feet and face.
This World Leprosy Day, you can give a woman like Shanne the beauty for ashes. You can bring her joy for mourning, and gladness instead of despair!
Because of your gifts, Shanne can be completely cured of leprosy through our community health programme in Bougainville!
