Buruli Ulcer Cure and Care

Stop the Suffering!

By the time 8-year-old Renate was accurately diagnosed, the terrible disease of Buruli ulcer had already eaten away much of the skin around her nose and mouth. But thanks to friends like YOU she received treatment and surgery through one of our hospitals in the DR Congo. Did you know over 50% of all Buruli ulcer victims are children under 15? It's heartbreaking—and it can quickly turn tragic if children are not diagnosed and treated in time to prevent extensive surgery and skin grafts. Acting quickly is the key— your gift can help prevent a child from suffering a lifetime of disfigurement.
