THE LEPROSY MISSION

THE LEPROSY MISSION 



A donation of £400 was sent to TLM in February, which represented home box collections, spontaneous small change handed to me, and a 'top-up' from the church account. TLM's letter of thanks is on the table at the back of All Saints and includes confirmation that the donation will be forwarded to the Purulia Hospital Project in West Bengal. Many thanks for all contributions made throughout the parish, both monetary and by way of used stamps.


The January 2018 Issue of TLM's New Day magazine reported that the first stage of providing a new Outpatients' Department at Purulia would hopefully be completed in 2018, followed by a second phase in 2019 to transform the current Outpatients' building to include a canteen serving healthy food to staff and patients, and administration space to house patient records. Plans are also underway to refurbish old and run­down doctors' homes in the hospal grounds in a bid to attract new doctors to Purulia. Hopefully there will be news in the 2019 Quarterly magazine that all these renovations are Work in Progress. New Day magazine is an insight into TLM's efforts to provide help to leprosy victims currently receiving treatment and those who are in rehabilitation. There are copies by the Used Stamps box.
