A child's future should not be left to chance.

Every two minutes someone in the world is diagnosed with leprosy. More than 200,000 people hear the words 'you have leprosy' every year. 10% of those new cases are in children.
Leprosy can cause so much harm if not found and treated early. Injuries can lead to loss of education and disability. All of this is preventable, it is vital that the hidden cases of leprosy are found and so these people can be cured. 

There is a cure! A gift of £24 will find and cure someone of leprosy. The Leprosy Mission trains and sends Community outreach teams to rural areas, far from hospitals and clinics to host outreach sessions like this one pictured.

Community Outreach teams in India

Rebecca witnessed this one in India a few months ago. As the team used the Snakes and Ladders game to gather a crowd and entertain the children, the outreach team was able to meet with the community leaders and ask if there was anyone showing early signs of leprosy. They were able to teach the people gathered that leprosy can be cured and how to detect the early signs.

Your support can make a difference. Your help can enable these teams to be trained and to go and find the hidden cases of leprosy. Together we can defeat leprosy so that no-one's future is left to chance!
