Your Church Can Give
Your church can support a specific project or incorporate our ministry into your church missions. Through your partnership, you and your church can demonstrate Christ’s love by ministering to the physical and spiritual needs of some of the most marginalized people in the world, those affected by leprosy and Buruli ulcer.

Your Church Can Raise Awareness
VBS and Sunday School Materials
One of our most popular projects is “Pete the Pig”, inspired by a boy named Wilber who, in 1913, bought a little piglet and named him Pete. When Pete was big and fat, Wilbur took him to the market and sold him for $25. Wilbur then donated the $25 to American Leprosy Missions to help cure and care for people affected by leprosy. Today children can collect their coins in piggy banks and use that money to support the ministry of American Leprosy Missions.
- “Pete the Pig” materials offer ten lessons and activities. These age-appropriate tools teach kids about the suffering of children with leprosy around the world and share the truth that with their help, sick children can be treated. Download the “Pete the Pig” overview AND download “Pete the Pig” lesson packet.
