Tribal Women Care India
LONG TERM – In all of the work we do, we have but one long-term goal. It is to change people’s attitudes towards Leprosy. Tribal women often together with their children, are still disowned by their husbands, families and communities.
I am not ashamed to say that among our Trustees there are those that know what it means to grow up in a Leprosy colony. The children of Leprosy colony.
The children of Leprosy patients who were forced to leave their families and do the only thing then possible. To ‘earn’ their living by begging.
