Holistic approach

Following the development of the Multi-Drug Therapy (MDT) in 1981 that can effectively cure leprosy, there was widespread optimism for the elimination of leprosy. Yet many years have passed and leprosy is still with us. Why?

2017 Good will Dinner 

To promote good will with the people and the lepers in the remote villages in the highland, our society sent $US 1500 for a good will dinner. With the money we were able to have a "grand feast" for the villages of Achép, Vơng, Tungke, Trâng, Kpă Leng et .. of the county of Ayun in Vietnam. Even after that, the money left over was enough to provide food for 5 lepers with special needs for 2 months.

Custom Shoes

Leprosy caused multiple sores at the extremities that can end in deformities of the feet if the wounds are not properly cared for. With the lack of sensation caused by leprosy, the lepers can aggravate the wounds and enable secondary infections to ravage their bodies, leading to further deformities. Protecting the feet is of high importance; the lepers desperately need shoes
