Lalgadh Leprosy Services Centre, Nepal – and kids with leprosy
Bet you thought leprosy was an ancient disease of the past?... Nope! Lalgadh Leprosy Hospital is the world's busiest leprosy hospital - at the epicentre of world leprosy. We treated 1,500 new cases of leprosy last year, 7000 old cases, and 52,000 patients of all sorts. Sadly lots of kids get leprosy. Leprosy is curable, but needs to be diagnosed early, otherwise lifelong progressive crippling disability can follow - with blindness and amputations. Coming for a visit folks? Want to support this amazing work? Life-changing experience you'll never forget - especially if you combine it with a good look at the mighty Himalayas. Come on! It's a Mind-blower!
