No child should suffer leprosy
No child should suffer leprosy.Your urgent action now offers new life! Sometimes the suffering is just too much. What Satendra did to try to escape the suffering of leprosy is heartbreaking… Satendra was a boy. Just a boy. Before help came from compassionate people like you through The Leprosy Mission, he could find no reason to live. He took poison to try to stop his suffering. Poison! NO CHILD SHOULD SUFFER LEPROSY. That’s why I’m calling on you now to help stop the suffering of a child with leprosy. Your urgent donation can help heal the leprosy… and offer a child the chance to build a new life.
