Stevenia, Liberia

Stevenia, Liberia

Stevenia is a fourteen-year-old from northern Liberia. She has 11 siblings, but she may never see them again. Though her parents brought her to an American Leprosy Missions partner hospital for treatment, it is unlikely that they will return for her.

Before receiving multi-drug therapy and treatment for drop-foot, Stevenia suffered from undiagnosed leprosy for five years. If she had not come to the hospital, she thinks that she would have died. She feels rejected by her family because of the stigma associated with leprosy.

Pray for Stevenia to heal from the physical and emotional damage caused by leprosy.
