Support The 180 Patients At The Government Leprosy Hospital, Kerala

Hi Everyone! I am starting this campaign because of how deeply moved I was after visiting this Government Leprosy Hospital at Koratty, Kerala.

With over 180 patients and extremely scarce medical staff to take care of these patients, the government recently (7 months ago) cut funding for this hospital. They did so citing that Leprosy has been eradicated from the country without taking into consideration the existing patients and the stigma attached to the disease in the society. This means that not only are these patients suffering but the hospital could also cease to get food and other necessities required to take care of their patients effectively.

The hospital lacks basic resources like rice, clean sheets among a whole plethora of other things so any help that you might be be able to do will change the lives of these wonderful people residing in this hospital, some for over 45 years. Some times when all else fails, it's up to us as individuals to come together and try to fix it.

For a better understanding about the condition of this hospital please take a look at this video - https://goo.gl/eNKZnW

An approximate break up of how the funds will be utilised -

Food : 1,50,000
Wheelchairs : 7000*8 = 56000
Bedsheets & Towels : 250*180 = 45000
Medicines : 2,50,000

Firstly, I would like to start off by saying I am really sorry for such a delay in updating you guys. I did not think it would be appropriate for me to post an update here without having made some solid, measurable progress.


With the help of 81 engineering students, we have been able to facilitate repair and repainting of the hospital along with some theatre equipments being replaced.

I think as earning members of the society, we have a duty towards the older citizens in our nation who have built this nation that I am so proud to be a part of. In a world filled with sorrow, hate and hopelessness, let's do our share in making the world a slightly better place every single day.

(just a small request - Please spare a couple of minutes today to pray for these wonderful people in this hospital and also for all the people in Kerala suffering from the floods and I urge you to do the needful)
