Every year, India celebrates Anti-Leprosy Day on the Martyrdom Day of Mahatma Gandhiji as a tribute to his enduring concern and compassion for the people affected with leprosy. His vision was to make India a leprosy-free nation and to ensure that those suffering from leprosy lead a life with dignity.
In line with Gandhiji’s vision, Believers Eastern Church is working in more than 40 leprosy colonies in India, restoring dignity and hope to people who are affected by leprosy. The Sisters of Compassion teams and medical workers look after the needs of the leprosy patients, providing them medical care and serving them with love and compassion.
