Aadhi Lakshmi was born Oct. 25, 2001 and lives in the leper colony. Some of her family members have leprosy, but she does not. This curse on the family makes them outcasts and untouchable to society. We plan to sponsor Aadhi and register her in an English Matriculation school. She will receive hope for a bright future! Aadhi does not attend school.
Sagaya Seeli, born November 30, 1998 lives with her family who has leprosy in the village. Even though Sagaya does not have leprosy, she is considered untouchable also. We plan to sponsor Sagaya and provide her with hope and a future! Sagaya does not attend school at this time.
Pastor Philip operates our Grace Garden Children's Home. After prayer, we decided to bless all the lepers by washing their feet and applying the medicine and wrapping their feet in sterile bandages.
Many people had no toes, half a foot or no foot at all. Many also had no fingers and their faces were deformed from the years of having leprosy..
Our Children from Grace Garden Children's Home were happy to help relieve these suffering souls!
These poor souls were soaking up the love and attention!
This is Jenifer. She is eleven years old and wants to become a nurse or doctor!
