From Suffering to Strength: Your Gift Matters

Leprosy is more than a disease; it’s a condition that leads to severe physical and emotional suffering. Among its most devastating complications are ulcers, affecting up to 20% of those with leprosy. These painful wounds, often resulting from unnoticed injuries due to loss of sensation, can lead to recurring health crises and a lifetime of challenges. The average recovery period for patients before they can return home from the hospital is 30 to 35 days. At The Leprosy Mission, we are committed to providing high-quality ulcer care to ensure those affected can live dignified, disability-free lives. We need your support to continue this vital work.

Ulcers in leprosy patients can cause significant disruption, especially in communities where walking is essential for daily life and work. Without proper treatment, ulcers can lead to a downward spiral of lost income, jobs, community ties, and even limbs. Your donation helps us provide:

  • Medical Treatment: Advanced wound care, including cleaning, debridement, and infection control.
  • Nutritional Support: Essential nutrition to promote healing and overall health.
  • Custom Orthotics: Pressure-relieving footwear and orthotic devices to prevent and treat ulcers.
  • Psychosocial Support: Counseling and support groups to help patients cope with the emotional and social challenges of leprosy.
  • Education and Training: Empowering patients with self-care knowledge to manage and prevent future ulcers.

Your donation is more than just a gift—it’s a lifeline. Through your support, we can prevent the devastating effects of leprosy ulcers and help patients lead healthy, fulfilling lives. Join us in our mission to provide hope, healing, and a brighter future for those affected by leprosy.
