A Disease of Exiles
Leprosy, a bacterial disease that is easily cured if discovered and treated early, has dealt a devastating blow to these people. Shunned and ignored by society, they’ve had no treatment and little knowledge of how to properly care for leprosy. Because of this, many are disfigured or blind or have severe nerve damage. Others have lost loved ones to the disease.
GFA World began to work among the leprosy colonies in 2007. Through this ministry, leprosy patients receive a daily meal, tailor-made shoes, wound cleaning and education and awareness programs.
More than 30 workers serve the leprosy patients. Some come throughout the week and trim hair, nails and beards. They also bathe patients and do laundry for those who are unable to take care of themselves because they have lost their hands and fingers.
Discover the transformative work of GFA World’s Leprosy Ministry, a beacon of hope and healing for thousands of lives affected by leprosy in Asia. Learn more about how you can support this vital ministry, bringing dignity, care, and the love of God to those often shunned by society.
