Rajeev could not afford to travel to hospital.

He lives a hand-to-mouth existence in a remote village in India, only making just enough money each day. Leprosy hides in communities like Rajeev's. There is no medical care and people cannot afford to make the journey to the nearest hospital.

We need to find people like Rajeev and get them the cure for leprosy before it's too late.

It took hours for our medical team to travel to Rajeev's village and set up a mobile health camp. Once there, more than 300 people came to see them in a single day.

Now Rajeev is getting the help that he needs, but we still need to find and cure so many more people before they become permanently disabled by leprosy. Just as the wise men brought precious gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh to Jesus, the gift of medical care is precious to people like Rajeev.

With a gift from you, our medical teams can go where no others can reach, to find and cure people who have no-one else to help them.

When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshipped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

We need to keep travelling to remote areas and we need to keep running these health camps. But we cannot
do it without your help.

A gift of £24 could find and cure one person like Rajeev - a gift of £48 could help two people. Rajeev is a father of five and after he visited the health camp, Leprosy Mission staff visited his home to examine the rest of his family. 

Can you imagine finding out that your entire family could be at risk of such a devastating disease?

But because of your kindness, families like Rajeev's will no longer have to worry about what leprosy could do to them. 

Please remember Rajeev, his family and so many others like him in your prayers. Your generosity and compassion means so much.
