Giving hope and a future

Brighter Future International is a Christian organisation committed to rebuilding lives ravaged by leprosy, HIV, neglected tropical diseases, disability and poverty.

8-year-old Adalaxmi’s world fell apart when her father contracted leprosy

Adalaxmi's life was never the same after her father was diagnosed with leprosy. Her mother abandoned the family and her father turned to alcohol to numb his grief.

A few years later, Adalaxmi's father remarried but she was never accepted by her stepmother. Their family home quickly became a prison. Adalaxmi was taken out of school and forced to work all day. When she put a foot wrong, her stepmother beat her. Adalaxmi was neglected and abused for years.

But Adalaxmi and her brother were found and welcomed into Rainbow Children’s Home with support from Brighter Future sponsors. Someone just like you gave Adalaxmi her childhood back. 

Sadly, Adalaxmi’s story is common in India. There are many children like her who are still suffering. They need your love and support.

You can change everything for a child like Adalaxmi
