HOME FOR CHILDREN WITH LEPROSY IN INDIA
Leprosy is a disease still present in some regions in the world. Unfortunately in many Asian nations continues to cause many deaths. Children whose parents have leprosy are rejected from the society and are forced to live outside the cities without adequate aid and in conditions of great hardship that will significantly affect their health. We have decided to finance and support the building of a house in Central India that can accommodate 150 children. In this house the kids can be cared for and receive a proper school education with the help of qualified medical stuff and volunteer teachers. This will allow them to leave the leprosy colonies and gradually be reintegrated in the society.
CENTER FOR CHILDREN AT RISK IN INDIA
There are still many places in the world where children grow up in poverty and abuse. In the heart of India live the ethnic groups of the Banchhara and Bedia, where thousands of women, following an ancient hindu tradition, are involved in prostitution. Families force their daughters from an early age to follow the destiny of their mothers. Most of the men are addicted to alcohol and many children are abandoned on the road. Some friends working in partnership with Life Share Network had the courage and the strength to bring a change in this situation. A center has been opened to host children and women who wish to start a new life in hope and freedom.
