For people in poverty, leprosy attacks their most basic ability to earn a living by hand or on foot. Yet they cannot afford to pay for training in a trade where their disabilities won't matter. So your gift of a training course will last them a lifetime, earning income, independence, dignity and respect.
Only $24 - This gift will provide a range of hardy seeds for fantastic vegetables, along with advice on how to grow a bumper crop. For a family left impoverished and hungry by the consequences of leprosy, this means a source of nutritious food and the chance to earn an income at a market stall.
Only $40 - Someone in poverty affected by leprosy might dream of a trade, but the price of tools is out of their reach. Your gift includes everything they need to start working and earning, along with really good training from the Leprosy Mission. You are giving them a productive career, plus a whole new standing in the eyes of their community.
Only $45 - A simple sewing kit can give someone affected by leprosy the chance to work and earn a living again. By stitching and mending clothes a girl will be given vocation, and a woman will be able to support and look after her children. It is truly a wonderful gift.
Sewing is the vocation that will never go out of style, but how can a woman sew when her hands and feet have been affected by leprosy? This wonderful sewing machine is adapted to her needs. Your gift will give her all the equipment she needs to earn a living for life.
Only $1100 - Education is the most valuable asset a young person can attain. This incredible gift covers an approved course, accommodation and all living expenses for one child for a year.

Only $10 - If leprosy is left untreated it can damage the nerve endings that warn us when we hurt our feet. Unable to feel pain or irritation, feet become injured and disabled. Your gift of micro-fibre sandals with soft padding will protect feet for years. This is vital, especially for children, so they can step in
Like goats, pigs are cheap to feed, easy to care for and don't use much space - so they are a great blessing for poor families struggling with disabilities caused by leprosy. One piglet becomes a breeding sow and soon there is lots of pork and piglets to sell: food for the family and valuable income.
Only $20 - This enables a person affected by leprosy to access a month of medicine to be cured from this dreadful disease, but cannot afford without you. Your gift is vital. If leprosy treatment with multi-drug therapy is started early enough, long-term disability can be completely avoided.

With this amazing gift of reconstructive foot surgery and physiotherapy, you will help someone walk again. Without this gift, a person in poverty with leprosy will never be able to afford to step back into a fulfilling life.
Transform the life of one person living in poverty, affected by leprosy.
