Persons affected by leprosy, especially those with leprosy-related disabilities, may face stigma leading to social exclusion and poor mental well-being. Social exclusion often aggravates existing poverty, social inequalities and other vulnerabilities. A substantial proportion of persons affected suffer from common mental health conditions, such as depression and anxiety. Where such services are available, persons affected may be helped through socio-economic rehabilitation services, self-care or self-help groups, peer counselling and community mental health services. Often these involve meeting in groups and/or close, face-to-face contact with peers or care givers.

The key COVID-19 control measures like social distancing, self-isolation and prohibition to meet in groups directly interfere with the above services and interventions. This may directly affect the livelihood of persons affected, their ability to carry out effective prevention of disability activities and activities to work on building resilience and overcoming mental health problems. They may also increase social exclusion and loneliness, while fear of COVID-19 infection may add to anxiety and depression.

Raise awareness among health workers, social services and public authorities

Dear Friends,

The affecetd patients were given awareness on Health topics.

“Severe malnutrition is both a medical and social disorder, successful management of these severely malnourished children requires that medical and social problems be recognized and corrected.” The Leprosy project has developed a strategic plan to tackle the immediate problem of malnutrition as well as a long term plan to improve food security, knowledge of good nutrition, sanitation and hygiene.

The Leprosy Project has secured initial funding to provide:

  1. immediate nutritional supplements for children with acute malnutrition
  2. a nutrition, sanitation and hygiene education program for families whose children suffer from either acute or chronic malnutrition
  3. the introduction of safe food storage methods to provide food during the dry season when food may not be sufficient
  4. the introduction of appropriate crops and small animal husbandry to provide new sources of food
  5. research to determine the need and viability of providing or improving irrigation

The goal is to ensure that the nutrition level of the children living in these villages meets the World Health Organization nutrition standard which will allow them to develop normally allowing them to break the cycle of poverty into which they were born.

In addition to the nutrition program The Project continues to


  • Promote environmental and personal hygiene through education and volunteer activities
  • Build and enhance communal facilities such as public toilets, shower rooms with solar heaters, sewage drains and concrete footpaths, etc.
  • Provide environmental stoves and flues to individual households to prevent the house from filling up with hazardous smokes, and build water networks in some villages for piping fresh water to individual household
