Shipments of Medicines and Supplies
Your gifts send shipments of medicines and supplies into poverty zones so people with leprosy and related diseases can receive treatment and care.
Many doctors and health workers in Africa and Asia lack basic medicine and medical supplies that you or I could easily get at the corner drug store, and people are suffering and dying because of it. Illnesses, infections and more go untreated … and worsen. Pharmacies in clinics and hospitals are empty, and patients need to travel great distances in search of medicines.
Thanks to your support, in fiscal year 2016, we shipped 94,750 treatments to Nepal, DR Congo and the Republic of the Congo. These medicines and medical supplies were worth more than $5.1 million.
These crucial shipments were airlifted in small, mobile medical packs which are easy to use and transport. Your generous support covered the cost of shipping and handling, enabling us to get this medicine where it’s needed fast so that people with leprosy and related diseases can start receiving treatment and care.
