Leprosy is a curable infection, but poor access to medical facilities and perceived social stigma can cause delay to people receiving treatment. People with leprosy often resort to begging as employment opportunities become closed to them.
The incredible project works with the Village of Hope in Delhi where many leprosy sufferers live and are working to rebuild their lives. This project is about enabling people who have been afflicted by leprosy to become involved with the community and give them the skills and education to develop their own employment opportunities. By providing educational facilities, social support, and the tools and opportunities to make a career for themselves, individuals can rebuild their lives.
Your group will work with members of the community to assist with tasks some of which they may not be able to complete themselves. This may involve helping to replace dressings, to building maintenance or developing enriched community facilities.
