    Support leprosy People For Their Livelihood

    from Tiruvannamalai, Tamil Nadu


SWLPRD is an NGO registered charity meant for leprosy help organization started in 1992  registered No 308/1992  Mr.Alagesan is a chief executive SWLPRD’S board members are 7 in number. I am Santhosh Kumar President of SWLPRD and our Founder K.Alagesan, aged 57, Social worker for 40 years for the rights of Leprosy Victims across Tiruvannamalai.  

     SWLPRD wishes to introduce the organization and place before you small request for the welfare of the leprosy victims, for your kind consideration. It is a voluntary organization envisaged by the lepers themselves to work for the development of leprosy victims. It is with great respect and high regards to you and with a firm hope our organization submits this small request.

      The most ill-treated, socially discriminated and dirtiest human beings across the globe are the lepers. Here in the context of the area where the organization serves, due to the lack of proper knowledge about this disease, the people believe this disease to be a curse and punishment from God for their since. As the nature of the disease is to distort, all the external organs like nose, ears, hands legs and sexual organs etc… the victims have an ugly appearance. As the puss from the wounds gives a foul smell, the people hate them and discriminate them to the utmost level. Due to the non-acceptance and intolerance of the society, the lepers live in faraway places form the society where they do not have any access to even for their basic needs such as safe drinking water, market and transports.
The society does not even allows them to draw drinking water from the public well for the people treat them as the most dirtiest and untouchable in the society. The lack of access for safe drinking water makes them to drink any contaminated water and become more prone to all kinds of water-born diseases like jaundice and many others. They are also not allowed to use the public latrines, so the land next to their huts becomes the open defecation place for them. This kind of defecation increases the chance of spreading many contagious diseases.  Area where the organization serves is very rural and interior; the main occupation of the people here is agriculture. As the lepers have distorted physique, they cannot strain their body too much, so they cannot work hard and so the people do not employ them. So the lepers go for begging which is the only way left for them for livelihood and few lepers do the most degrading act of cleaning the human waste in the towns. Along with mental distress of social discrimination, earning the daily bread for them and for the family makes their life very pathetic. So this organization was instituted with aim of feeding them and giving them a peaceful life. As cleaning the human waste and begging is not a respectable profession and this also is not a sustainable source of income for them.

This organization is feeding them for the past 30 years. Our concentration goes with Tiruvannamalai district. With die functed distorted hands legs ulcer wounds saliva sweating many patients is not fit for hard work so to begging us their last part of survival. Looking their ugly appearances the value based society reject in all forms of life. No private clinic considers their cry. Government hospital are too far to their reach fear of dog bite and stone pelting of children they fear for move about long way, many leprosy older people are crippled and stick up on bed young boys and girls hesitates to reveal their sorry part fearing on the value based society. This is the actual picture of people across Tiruvannamalai district.

         In every village they dead ones are cremated and burred in separate places. Seeing their social rejection, cry for living we had oriented them at our centre and asked for their life line in which a total of 30 leprosy patients aspired for Milk Cow they can manage with the support of husband and grown up children.Since the policy of SWLPRD is the original need should emerge from the side of beneficiaries should not be ours, based on the expressed decision we would like to act up on.


       Providing them with a Milk Cow support to run their family with self reliant environment. The Milk Cow project involves latest sager line of appointment of monitoring committee with in their community they will assist the beneficiaries to buy good Milk Cow. Contracting veterinary Doctor, Insurance authorities to claim the actual amount of when the asset (Milk Cow) happened to be death. Mandatory requirement of requesting the Doctor to pay tentative   scheduled monthly visit to assist the beneficiaries to be on line.

         The project staff involves fodder management dry fodder and concentration, staff salary, Co-Coordinator salary, as the staffs should go around 30 beneficiaries living some villages which are located 5 kilometers distanced each other our office. Hope we have summarized all the inputs of the project kindly do look in to our need and shed your tears on our cause. This project lights a lamp in the life of socially rejected uncared leprosy people by changing their life environment (begging) in to decent and dignified life through the accrued income of Milk Cow.
