We are excited to receive lists of potential Persons Affected by Leprosy (PALs) who are applying for educational assistance. There are several PALs who are being recommended by our partners, the Dept. of Dermatology in Southern Philippines Medical Center and the Dept. of Dermatology at the Dr. Jose N. Rodriguez Memorial Hospital, also known as the former Tala Leprosarium. The screening process consists of the verification of eligibility to avail of the educational support (ex. must be either a leprosy patient, a former patient, or a direct dependent of a PAL) and then the online interview to ensure that they are sincere and determined to continue their education. Some would like to complete a high school or a college degree. We hope to support in part their ambitions for a brighter future through formal education. Perhaps by the next schoolyear, we will be able to reach our goal---with your unwavering support! May the spirit of Giving grow and continue!
