Story

I wasn't aware that leprosy still existed until 5 years ago. I discovered that it only takes 3 antibiotics to treat the disease (the same number of antibiotics needed to treat tonsilitis) and 95% of the world's population are naturally immune, but the stigma around it is so vast that families cut out their relatives as they believe leprosy is sign from the devil. Please help me raise awareness and give these people the treatment that they need so they will no longer be ashamed of their disease and of themselves.

Thank you so much
