National Anti Leprosy Day

Mahatma Gandhi had on his personal agenda, the drive for Leprosy elimination and the stigma associated with this disease.

Hence it indeed is fitting that the day of the Mahatma's Martyrdom is commemorated as National Anti Leprosy Day in end January every year.

Prayas Club had a visit to the Kondhwa Leprosy Hospital organized where the students performed a street play to generate awareness about measures required to be taken by society , amongst the inmates of the Hospital. They were also taken on a round of the rehabilitation facilities.

A rapt audience of inmates were shown how society in general needs to be more aware of the needs of patients affected by leprosy.
Explaining the backdrop to a rapt audience

Society stands with the patients

Tell us more!
