Donate for a Leprosy Patient in Bihar (India)



254 Leprosy affected persons are being completely neglected in family and society and they are living a very miserable life. They don't have any option for developing better life conditions. In such circumstances they need self care training for safety, health checkups, clothes, shoes, etc and for livelihood - goat keeping, small shop, poultry, Cow etc., as the only options for their upliftment. Further, they are being rehabilitated and get self respect and esteem in family.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Leprosy is a major challenge in the society. They are facing the problem for food, clothing and shelter, as family and society treat them as secondary members. They are usually felt as a burden and hence their life cycle gets seriously effected. They have major health problems but they get zero treatment and problem gets more severe with age. On the other side, their self respect and esteem are broken in every step.

How will this project solve this problem?

The target Leprosy affected persons are provided self care training for safety, health checkups, clothes, shoes, etc and for livelihood - goat keeping, small shop, poultry, Cow etc. The objective is to provide an option for income generation to the leprosy affected persons. Along with skills upon graduation, they are also assisted in initiating Income Generation Activities. At the same time they are rehabilitated and ultimately they regain self respect and esteem.

Potential Long Term Impact

It improves the overall status of the Leprosy affected persons. The skills upon graduation decrease their dependency on family. As they start earning income their status and self respect in the family and society improve.
