Nutan’s Story

Before people like you and The Leprosy Mission found Nutan in India, her parents spent what little they had trying to help her. Her father was forced to bond their tiny plot of land to pay doctor’s fees. He even sold the animals that provided their income.

Leprosy ruined them all and Nutan’s condition got worse. Her hand became clawed, she lost her big toe and her foot became horribly ulcerated. Her school turned her away. Her community believed leprosy was a spiritual curse.

Weak from so much infection, struggling to walk and unable to grasp things properly, daily life and simple family tasks were just so difficult.

Cure One was her only hope. Nutan’s story represents every person being helped by Cure One supporters like you.

You can Cure One like Nutan now.



You provide the medicine and support that eradicates this ancient and still-feared disease of leprosy.

If only Nutan had been given a course of tablets like these when she first contracted leprosy. Sadly, she did not receive the right amount of medicine from local doctors to cure her initially.

When you Cure One, they will receive medical expertise, life-saving multi-drug therapy, support throughout their course of treatment and be completely cured through The Leprosy Mission with your help.

How can I Cure One, like Nutan today?


Your gifts will treat leprosy’s physical damage.

In Nutan’s case, to regain the use of her hand, reconstructive surgery and intensive physiotherapy before and after the operation were required.

Major surgery like this is far beyond the reach of poor families and communities.

Support from people like you is their only hope. Some may need a prosthetic or assistive device if they have lost toes, fingers or a limb.

Restoring lives is vital, because of the fear, rejection and stigma that still surrounds the ancient grief of leprosy.

As a Cure One supporter, you will be giving someone back what leprosy has taken away and give them hope for a better future.

You will turn rejection into hope, love and acceptance by restoring someone affected by leprosy back to their community through school or income earning opportunities.
