We thank you for your continued financial support during this global pandemic. Your support continues to help us bring relief to those who are so desperately in need.
With hope and love I pray that your Lenten experience this year will be filled with the joy of God’s mercy and grace. Helping to ease the pain and suffering of the victims of leprosy, will help us grow deeper in faith and love in Jesus. Saint Damien will continue to help us with his intersessions in heaven.
Words cannot express the beauty of the souls and the loving hearts of the brothers and sisters who continue to visit the villages and homes of the lepers. Not only bringing food and medication to lepers but literally feeding and caring for them like a mother caring for her child. Enduring torrential rains, the scorching heat of the sun and the rough terrains, they give their all.
For the lepers, our desire has always been to alleviate their pain and sorrow; however, their most immediate needs are still education, clean water, food, clothing, shelter and medication. Providing clean water in the mountain areas where the lepers live is the most difficult task.
Along with providing food and shelter, we are helping the lepers to embrace a better future with opportunities for integration into a normal way of life. In the past years we have helped fund their children’s education. This year, specifically, we completed the water projects for village A and village B in Pleiku.
