Leprosy still exists

Help us to overcome this disease. 

Today, 600 people will be diagnosed with leprosy; 50 of those will be children. 

Over 3 million people across the globe are living with the undiagnosed leprosy. Leprosy is not a disease of the past, it still exists and it is still destroying lives.
