Caring for children of families with leprosy in Tanzania

Requested by

Response Generosity to Children Tanzania (R.G.C.T)

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

We are working for the Leprosy Families Children Fund. We provide support for 85 children from 43 families for their health and educational development because their parents have become disabled due of the deformity of leprosy. We need money for foods, school fees, unforms, shoes, and other school requirements – or donation of these goods directly. Mostly we provide the treatments for children with leprosy. Currently we need $25,000.
