Story

Though leprosy has been affecting children, women and men since Biblical times, millions of people around the world still do not understand its complexities. For remote regions of developing countries, historical beliefs cause people to fear leprosy as a curse from the gods. The fear and hatred for people affected by leprosy forces these individuals into a state called the “living death”. They must fight for their place among the living.Help us in the fight against leprosy.

My own daughter, Anna Wedderburn, is working in the Karigiri Laboratory as an immunologist, so I have a personal reason to help this important cause.
