What We Do…
For more than 30 years our organization has been providing shelter to people suffering from leprosy. Currently in our leper colony we have seven families with at least one member who has the disease. Each patient has been treated, and though their leprosy is no longer infectious, their disabilities are permanent. As a result, they are still cast out from their communities and society.
We provide these people with a home, rations, security, electricity and running water. Two years ago we completed construction of a brand new facility to provide them with a comfortable and clean place to call home.
Much of our farm produce is given to these people to allow them to live lives of dignity and security. Even with our efforts, many still head into the local markets each day to beg from local businesses—as often there is very little else that they are able to do with their time.
We work hard to help with their individual needs by addressing their physical, mental, social and spiritual needs. We want them to feel their value as human beings, to know what it is to live a dignified life.
