Challenge

Children with disability face lot of difficulties for survival and parents also suffer to look after them. Many children require medical help because of malnourishment, intestinal parasites and infectious diseases. As a result, children become mentally disturbed, their future is in dark and the whole family becomes victim of disability. Deformed leprosy cure patients are neglected by their own family. Deformed leprosy patients and families suffer without income and struggle for bread every day.

Solution

Parents need to explain to them and involve them in doing exercises with their child and in turn parents/caregivers learn to provide an environment of physical and emotional safety to their children. Deformed leprosy cure patients are neglected by their own family, and they will be provided with food groceries and income generating program.
