Although it's a curable disease, over a quarter of a million people in the world are afflicted with leprosy, most of them in South Asia.
Years without treatment causes most suffers of the disease to be disfigured and unable to work. Because they are a maligned part of society, they have no choice but to beg and live in colonies.
Your donation will support GFA's ministry among the leprosy patients. This will provide medical treatment, hot meals, custom shoes and the message of Jesus' love.
Since 1979, GFA has existed to fulfill one passion: seeing communities in Asia discover the same joy, hope and lasting peace we’ve found in Christ.
We serve to equip missionaries to minister throughout Asia. The projects funded through myGFA each play a significant part in helping missionaries serve more effectively and in transforming communities with the love of Christ.
