Leprosy is a curable disease if caugth quickly and treated with modern medicines; but the lack of awareness of the illiterate poor in many of the most desperate areas of the world results in a total global population of Lepers still at 3 Million. India has more Lepers than any other country.
Decades ago a European organization established a Leper Colony near our Head Quarters in Kakinada but long since abandoned support. Area Christian Churches join together to support the Lepers living in this compound. On a regular basis, Christ Gospel India provides prepared food, bags of rice for cooking, clothing and medical care.
If you are moved to make a onetime donation to support these Lepers and their children, please follow your heart. US Citizens and residents will receive annual donation receipts which can be used for tax deduction. Instructions for donations are included in the "Contact Us" section of this website.
