People affected by leprosy living with dignity in transformed communities that have overcome leprosy
In 1873 Wellesley Bailey and his wife, Alice, returned to Ireland from India, heavy with the thoughts of the suffering they had seen – people with leprosy who were severely disabled, rejected and without any means of support. They were determined to raise awareness of leprosy and its damaging consequences, which led them in 1874 to start The Mission to Lepers, now called The Leprosy Mission. The first Mission hospital was started at Purulia in West Bengal.
The Leprosy Mission Trust India, a non-profit organisation registered under Societies Registration Act, 1860 is the largest leprosy-focused NGO in India. We work with individuals and communities disadvantaged by leprosy, irrespective of caste, creed and religion, by addressing their physical, mental, social and spiritual needs to uphold human dignity and eradicate leprosy. Dr Mary Verghese, Executive Director of The Leprosy Mission Trust India (TLMTI), is a post graduate medical professional, with over 23 years of working experience in public health and development initiatives, including six years in TLMTI. Her experience includes direct implementation of community health and development interventions; providing technical and management support to reproductive and child health programmes; curriculum development, training and mentoring of trainers; evidence-based research and advocacy to influence policy and practice; and managing a large Global Fund-supported programme through a consortium of partners to improve treatment, care and support to people affected by HIV/AIDS

 Fought bravely for the dignified life
Moharmati Yadav, daughter of a postmaster, at the age of 10 had stomach pain and went to a nearby hospital in Raigarh. She was diagnosed as a case of leprosy due hypo pigment patches seen all over her body. She took MDT only for 4 months, and she discontinued taking medicine due to her father being transferred to Bilaspur district. At the age of 17 she got married to a steam engine driver. They had a daughter and two sons. During that time signs of leprosy progressed on her body with anesthesia over bilateral hand and foot resulting clawing of her fingers. She cam to Leprosy Mission Hospital at Champa nearly 6 hours travel by bus from her home. She was diagnosed with leprosy. Learning about this her husband was not willing to take her back home. It was shocking for her and she learned that there were several such people who had come to Champa for treatment from so far and some never returned. There was a small area for such people at the backyard of the hospital. Her father took Moharmati to his home and he travelled along with her to hospital for treatment. Community members questioned her father about the ulcer on her foot and her deformity. He too decided to leave her at the leprosy colony at Champa. He thought that this would help his family to be out of stigma and that his daughter could access treatment easily from hospital. Along with her 6-month-old son she landed up in the hospital again. Her father was kind enough to hire out a tiny veranda of a hut in the colony for his daughter. Rejected by her husband and parted her older children Moharmati learned to live in poverty. From TLM B.L. Home & Hospital Champa, she was regularly examined and provided MCR footwear. She was also taught about selfcare process, how to prevent herself from developing ulcers. Moharmati wore the MCR foot wear regularly and looked after herself. Within a month her ulcer was healed. She started some rice business in the colony for her daily income; her two sons and daughter-in-law were trained from the TLM Vocational Training Centre in Champa. After 40 years of struggle now we see her sitting inside her grocery shop in the leprosy colony & living a dignified life. She is also a member of the self-care group in the colony that was initiated by TLM. She use MCR footwear regularly and every six months she changes her footwear. She also teaches self-care to people who come to her shop
 Being fearless
Birender Kumar, thirty-five year old, came to TLM Hospital for ulcer treatment of his right foot. In 2005, he was injured with a stone in Mumbai. He spent over 2 lakhs on his treatment but no doctor could diagnose or offer suitable treatment. As his condition worsened, the doctors from Government Hospital Jaunpur, Uttar Pradesh told him that his foot would be amputated and referred to TLM Naini for further treatment. His first visit to TLM Hospital was in Oct 2013. With the effort of TLM doctors and nurses, his foot was saved. In clinical terms the wounds of a leprosy patient are termed as ulcers. Ulcer dressing is one of the most difficult things in the healing process. M. leprae ( bacteria) causes lesions on the skin and damages peripheral sensory nerves in the body. Once the bacteria damage these nerves, the subject loses the ability to feel sensations in the afflicted part of the body. Even families of the leprosy affected refuse to clean the foul smelling ulcers often filled with pus. irender volunteers in dressing the wounds of patients. He spends four hours each day helping the nurses to clean the wounds. In an environment where most people are burnt out from the hardships, Birender not only studies to prepare for his B.Ed exams but also looks forward to a more secure government job. His stories of being fearless even at the brink of losing his leg, the energy he carries to the wards and the commitment towards his work are the essential ingredients of mainstreaming efforts
 Vocational Training for a better livelihood
Liteshwari Kurrey, is a Grade 12 pass, 18 year old girl, from small a village named Ghinwara near Champa in Janjgir. Her family includes her parents Keshav Prasad Kurrey and Daras Kurrey, a younger sister and two younger brothers. Her father is a poor farmer and sometimes also does labour work to meet the family daily needs. Her mother is a housewife and sometimes she helps her husband in farming .Her siblings are studying. In 2012 she found a hypo-pigmented patch on her upper arm which was later diagnosed as leprosy. She was in deep shock. In TLM Champa Hospital she was kept under medication for six months and recovered completely. Being the eldest daughter, it was her desire to support her family financially. After proper counseling at the hospital, she was advised to visit our VTC at Champa. In the year 2013 she came to VTC Champa and got admission in the COPA (certificate course in computer operator & programming assistance) trade. On completion of the course, she was appointed as office in-charge at Mahindra showroom in Raigarh. She started with Rs. 3500 with accommodation and food. She is very happy to support her family financially and also able to support her siblings in their studies. She thanks VTC Champa for making her confident and realizes her own strength.
 Education under Catch Them Young
Pinky Tandan and Rinky Tandan are two sisters. Pinky is 11 years old and studying in Grade 5. Rinky Tandan is 6 years old, studying in Grade 1 this year. They are children of Laxmin Bai and Santosh of Ghoghra Nala, Champa. Both the parents are affected by leprosy. They reside in a leprosy colony situated outside the campus of TLM Champa . Mr. Santosh expired in 2011. He was a labourer by profession and the only bread earning member in his family. After his death the burden of three children (including Rani – 3 years old) was solely only Laxmin Bai. It was very difficult for her to run the family and meet the everyday needs of the family. She was seriously considering pulling the children out of school as she simply could not bear the costs on educating them. When she came to know about the Catch Them Young Programme started by TLM, she approached the TLM Hospital Champa. She was referred to the Project staff who visited her house and completed the need assessments and referred her for the CTY financial assistance. The Rehabilitation Committee considering the need, finalized to provide the assistance to her children to support their education. This year both the children are covered under CTY programme. Both Pinky and Rinky are going to school regularly. Laxmin Bai is very happy that her children are able to continue their education with the support. She thanks TLM for the support. TLM hopes that, through a small support Pinky and Rinky will be encouraged to complete their school education without dropping out.
 Hope Restored
Hemant Kumar, a 20 years old leprosy affected youth, was unable to do his daily work because of the developed weakness in his left hand. His fingers started becoming clawed. He was completely frustrated and had lost confidence. He was very disturbed thinking that perhaps he would not be able to continue studies. He was also worried of reactions from his family and friends. Someone suggested that he should visit The Leprosy Mission Bethesda Leprosy Hospital in Champa. He was put on Multi Drug Therapy (MDT) for a year and was taught exercises for his clawed hand. In 2012, he went through Reconstructive Surgery and his clawed hand was corrected. Post surgery, his fingers are straightened out. During his admission to our hospital, he was advised to join our Vocational Training Centre for a Diesel Mechanic course, free of cost. He is about to join the next batch soon. He is very thankful to The Leprosy Mission Trust India Hospital for giving him a new life.
