Leprosy Mission meeting

Every year there is the opportunity to learn about how The Leprosy Mission is helping people suffering from this dreadful disease, still the scourge of the poor in many parts of the world. It is extraordinary that in the 21st century it is still so feared and misunderstood, when there has long been a cure and treatment available. But when help and hope come along, there is plenty to smile about – for example for eleven old Satish from India who, because he received treatment in time, is cured, and the deep ulcer on his arm is now healed and strengthened, meaning he can fulfil his dream of playing cricket! All thanks to the dedicated staff at a Leprosy Mission hospital.
Pamela Levens comes to Tideswell each year to tell us more, and the 2018 meeting is on Wednesday 21st March at 2pm, in the Institute. Come along and learn exciting news in the face of despair. Refreshments will follow, and Pamela will take any used stamps and foreign coins in support of their work.
