Women that are on their own and are struggling to survive. Many of these women also have children and we do as much as we can to help them. All of our women are vulnerable, sometimes a husband will abandon his wife because of the stigma of leprosy, or perhaps the husband is in jail or dead. Each of our women has a different story but the common thread is that they are on their own.
We have a local team of staff who spend time with each of the women we help to find out their individual needs. They have compassion for the women in their care, however they don’t just feel this, they do something constructive and positive to help the women
