American Leprosy Missions Radiothon Begins Today

Join Apopka’s Hometown Station, 1520 WBZW along with our sister stations FM 94.9 and 950 WTLN for our Radiothon to benefit the American Leprosy Missions. Jim Turner, Pete Paquette and special guests will take over the air waves this Monday through Wednesday from 3-4pm as we ask for your help to bring an end to this preventable disease.

American Leprosy Missions is the oldest and largest nonprofit, non-denominational organization in the U.S. working to cure and care for people with leprosy and Buruli ulcer worldwide. American Leprosy Missions serves hundreds of thousands of people in 11 countries around the world.

It costs $30 to completely cure one child of leprosy. The cost is that low because the antibiotics that destroy the leprosy bacteria are donated by the manufacturer. We only need the funds to ship the medicine to poverty zones and put them to work! In essence, every dollar you give sends another dollar worth of medicine where it’s needed to cure children.

  • A gift of $90 will provide the medicine to cure three children.
  • A gift of $60 will provide the medicine to cure two children.
  • A gift of $30 will provide the medicine to cure a child.
