Sister Noemi works at St. Mary of Leuca Hospital in Madurai, India. In the Pudupatti Leprosy Home, she and other Leuca sisters care for 245 individuals affected by leprosy. These people need clothes, blankets, towels and the most necessary things for their day to day life.
"On Christmas Day 2013 we celebrated a beautiful day with all our families touched by leprosy. Please thank all the benefactors for their solidarity, love and concern to come forward to help our deprived patients. Sister Noemi.
P.-S. I am sending some pictures taken on Christmas Day."
Again in 2014, Leprosy Relief Canada needs your help to be able to provide clothes, blankets, towels and the most necessary things for their day to day life to poor families affected by leprosy.
Vadala Hospital is providing free treatment, care and surgeries to people affected by leprosy. The small town of Vadala is located several hours drive from Mumbai, in India.
Like many hospitals associated with leprosy, it only just about manages to make ends meet. Doctors Prabhakar, the husband and wife who run it, work extremely hard for very long hours, supported by dedicated staff. The hospital gets the majority of its income from donations. For the rest, Vadala is raising its own funds.
Leprosy Relief wants to increase its financial support to this center to provide a greater number of reconstructive surgeries. These surgeries restore hope to patients with disabilities.
