THE UMUADA’S COMMITTEE FOR LEPERS

 

Since leprosy is considered that ‘chronic &unclean disease’ which people disassociate from, we felt the need to extend a hand of fellowship to such persons living with the pain, stigmatization, and degradation of leprosy. Providing food and basic health care facilities for them, and sponsoring the health bills of those going in for amputation / artificial limbs replacement when necessary.
