Rehabilitation of Leprosy Cured but Deformed Persons
Introduction of Project
              
                        Leprosy is the least infectious air-borne disease caused by Bacteria. Itch-less, the painless hypopigmented patch is the early symptom of leprosy. But patients report for treatment only with some complications due to the asymptomatic nature of the disease.  It is easily curable by treatment. These persons with deformity (change of appearance), the ulcer on extremities due to loss of sensation are permanent and to be called Leprosy Cured but Deformed Persons (LCDPs) and not leprosy patients. Society isolates the LCDPs and their family members due to the stigma of the disease. They are still prevented from leading a normal life. India still has sixty percent of global case load. Unfortunately basic human rights of these persons are violated by more than one hundred laws.
 
Aim
                      Just like others, these LCDPs should be provided basic amnesties with respect.
Objectives
            
                      Daily food to these LCDPs with gross deformity is to be offered.
                     To restore the dignity of the individual and their family members.
                     To make them useful citizens of the society by instilling self confidence and esteem.
                     Employment through vocational employment to fulfill their financial needs.
 
Target Area
       Puducherry and Vanur,  Marakkanam, Mailam, Olakur, Vicravandy blocks in the Villupuram District.
 
Implementation of the project
           
                  Annam Charitable Trust, with its rich experience, concluded to address the long-standing problems faced by this neglected section of our society. An expert team selected the above blocks based on the financial condition of the victim including their family members.
                    The team recommended supporting them for two years from the date of commencement of this project.   After two years, the project will be evaluated by the expert team as per the expected impact mentioned below either to continue or to stop.
 
 
 
Impact
                  1. Improved health condition of LCDP and their family members – by consuming nutritious food, healed condition of ulcer on foot.
                 2. Improved financial condition of the family with our vocational guidance to the LCDPs and their family members-  if they purchased any valuables, clearing of any previously availed loan and no new loan.
                3.  The LCDPs are given importance in any decision of the family.
               4.  The family members become the dedicated volunteers in our service activities.
