Providing Medical Care for Lepers
What we do
India Hope works in 46 leper colonies which ministers to over 3,500 people suffering from leprosy. We provide medical care and provisions, such as rice and blankets and clothes and other items of necessity. We have also set up a home for the children of lepers; for these children, we provide food, clothing, education, and shelter. Most importantly, we prepare them for a better future.
How you can help
There are approximately five million people suffering from leprosy in India. They are living in approximately 50,000 leper colonies. Most of them live by begging. They are surviving life, but are in terrible physical pain. They live in isolated places, outside the cities and villages.
Please make a donation today and make a difference to lives of those suffering with a painful and debilitating illness. Thank you.
What your donations can do:
- £342 can provide one meal a day for 50 lepers in a leper colony.
- £642 can provide medical help to lepers to clean their wounds and to provide them with the necessary medicine.
- £21,428 will build a 100x 20 Sq ft. building as a common hall for lepers to live in, at a location where there is no leper colony.
