India COVID Crisis
Yes! I want to provide monthly tlc to children!
Leprosy is curable.
No child or adult should be excluded from family, community, school or workplace due to the disease.
If leprosy is identified and treated early enough, nobody should suffer disability from the disease. You will ensure those with leprosy will not suffer from nerve damage, loss of hands and feet, and loss of independence due to leprosy.
Children or people affected by leprosy are excluded from career development and normal community participation because of a lack of education or personal, social and economic issues that arise from stigmatising attitudes and marginalisation.
Schools often turn away children from leprosy affected families. The Leprosy Mission works hard to open school doors. Leprosy makes life in poverty difficult. Families cannot usually afford school materials.
Your tlc can help detect leprosy in children early. Children can avoid stigma, disability and discrimination.
Your monthly gift of tlc will make a real difference.
Together, we can help protect children from the effects of leprosy.
