Leprosy is back! Are you in danger?
Serving such poverty-stricken leper colonies in the Third World are a number of outreaches, such as “Hope for Hansen’s,” which says its mission “is to bring hope to those affected by leprosy and their families – hope for proper treatment and management of their disease, substantial improvements in their quality of life, and attaining self-sufficiency and independence.” The group does it by providing basic necessities of life, medical supplies, tuition for patients’ children – and micro-financing to help fund and support the entrepreneurial spirit for new businesses “such as bangle stores, bicycle repair shops, general stores, farming and rickshaws.”
