In some cultures, it’s common to flee from someone inflicted by leprosy. Considered unclean by society, people are afraid to catch the disease. Can you imagine having people run away from you wherever you went? Sometimes their own families abandon them. Poor and owning absolutely nothing, they can go days without a meal. What a horrible life and feeling of despair that would bring. BUT there is hope!
By giving to our leprosy ministry you can enable many leprosy patients to see God’s love displayed to them daily.
Each day we provide a nourishing meal for our leprosy patients, as well as medical treatment to help heal more quickly from the disease. Many are starving when they come to the leprosy colonies due to being shunned by society. Many of them don’t even have shoes! Our ministry provides custom shoes for them, making them feel happy and cared for, and helping to prevent disease from spreading to others.
