2. MAUREEN CARE HOME:
The Maureen Care Home is located in the outcasted Mohatma Gandhi leper colony, in
Over the past year, due to generous sponsors, Love Thy Neighbor India has provided the much needed MDT Treatment, as well as specially fitted shoes to all 42 people affected by leprosy. The medicine was provided regularly over a six month period in which a doctor visited the colony every Sunday from 4 to7 pm to treat the patients. $9 USD a month covered the supply of MDT medication for one of the scores of persons afflicted with Leprosy, a terrible disease, relatively, unknown to Americans. MDT Treatment remains highly effective, and patients are no longer infectious after the first monthly dose. However, left untreated, leprosy can be progressive, causing permanent damage to the skin, nerves, limbs and eyes. Although the damaging results can't be reversed, a full consistent treatment will cure them from this horrific disease. They will no longer be infected with leprosy and given a fair chance at life again. The lack of awareness about this disease leads people to believe (falsely) that the disease is highly contagious and incurable. Less than ten percent of the world's population is actually capable of acquiring the disease. We also have arranged medical treatment for general sickness, as well as providing them with the medicine needed. A doctor
visits the leper colony every Wednesday morning.
Love Thy Neighbor India also helped in providing general health-care to 279 men, women, and children.
