Eradicating leprosy, one family at a time.

Gendetesfa, right outside of Dire Dawa, is a village on the border of the Ethiopian desert imprisoned by poverty and plagued by leprosy. Cornerstone started a medical clinic in the village in 2013. Since then, the Project HOPE Clinic has hosted over 11,000 patient visits and improved the quality of life in Gendetesfa.
