The core of our work, the thing on which we stay focused, is the care of those affected with leprosy. It is true that the number of new leprosy cases is declining and that is about the most wonderful news we can tell anyone.
New Hope Rural Leprosy Trust children celebrate 64th Republic Day India 2013. Its a special day for the whole country, a guest speaker always attends and addresses the children in Kottovaslu and Muniguda
In July two Trustees of New Hope Rural Community Trust visited the New Hope India projects. Eileen Thorpe has been a long time Trustee and make several visits and been keenly interested in the challenged children at Namaste House in Muniguda. Her career experience as a teacher has been a great help to the children. Elizabeth Toon has been several times to our project and did 5 months several years ago as a volunteer Nurse in the Hospice. They came this trip with their grand-daughters Emily and Ellen.
