American Leprosy Missions in the Congo

Leprosy is embedded in the lives of people who live deep in the isolated rainforests of the Republic of the Congo. When we found Fidel, he was suffering from the most serious form of leprosy. People looked down on him, and he was called names, rebuked, and ostracized from his community. But he accepted our invitation to take a long journey to our partner, Pioneer Christian Hospital, the only medical facility in the region. And he received healing and hope.

 

Ramnandan Mahahra
