Why 'No Pain, No Gain'?

Although not feeling physical pain may sound like an attractive prospect, pain is essential to our lives. Without the warning signal of pain, a person with leprosy is incredibly vulnerable physically, emotionally and socially.

When leprosy is left untreated leprosy damages a person's nerve endings leading to insensitivity to pain. Being unable to feel pain leads to the development of wounds and infection.

These wounds can lead to disability, the loss of the use of hands, or feet, or facial disfigurement. Disability caused by leprosy often sparks stigma and fear.

The Leprosy Mission exists to change this by curing, caring for and restoring people affected by leprosy.
