You can give these children the Christmas they deserve.

Children keep coming to our hospitals and clinics showing signs of leprosy. It is not going away. Instead, the amount of child cases seems to be increasing. They desperately need your help.

  • These children need the cure for leprosy.

  • They need medical care for ulcers

  • They need the miraculous hands of skilled surgeons to fix their damaged feet and hands.

    We asked these children to take part in our nativity in the hope that you would listen to their stories.

    We hear about Jesus as a baby at this time of year, and many children across the world take part in nativity plays. We present Jesus as meek and mild. Sleeping peacefully in a manger while angels look on. These children’s lives are a world away from the promise of Christmas.

    Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.

    Let's say enough is enough this Christmas

    This Christmas you can make sure that children like these receive an early diagnosis, get the cure in time, and really quick and effective care for ulcers and injuries so they don't get infected wounds, gangrene and risk losing their limbs.

    The children in our nativity have seen the horror of people with leprosy on the wards who didn't get the help they needed in time. They've seen people who have lost their eyesight and those who have had to have limbs amputated. But they've also seen other children leaving with MDT which cures leprosy in their hands, their wounds cleansed and bound, walking into a bright future after surgery. They can see the difference. These children deserve the absolute best.

    We need to act now. We cannot let another child down. We can't let any child live in fear of shame, in fear of being disabled, in fear of being scarred and attacked by this terrible disease.

    Let's make this a Christmas for them to remember.
