Our leprosy care projects:
· We have been sponsoring 10 children for full maintenance from families of leprosy sufferers. They receive residential care at different branches of the RV Mission and we provide them with education, healthcare, vocational training and employment when they leave school and help them to settle in normal social life. This project had been sponsored by the Order of St Lazarus, Lancashire branch.
· We have installed a water purification unit at the medical unit of the Believers’ Church, Purulia, West Bengal, India, to provide purified drinking water for leprosy sufferers.
· We have funded installation of tube-wells in Leprosy Village and Leprosy Colony in Purulia to provide the residents with fresh water for drinking and other purposes.
· Our ongoing regular nutritional project provides the residents of Leprosy Village with fresh food including fruits and vegetables.· We sponsor carers from Believers’ Church, Purulia to visit Leprosy Village regularly to look after the residents’ wound dressing and first-aid needs.
