We have all read about leprosy in the Bible, but not many have met anyone who is affected by it. In Mumbai in India there are estimated to be 160,000 such people plus, of course, their families who are also affected by this disease by association.
12 years ago a remarkable ministry started there and the following report celebrates the growth in that ministry of love and compassion (the meaning of the hindi word ‘Karuna’). Over 2,000 of these have received over 40,000 treatments! In my estimation it is one of the best ministries I have ever seen, combining love and compassion with a high standard of treatment and impact of the gospel.
Enjoy reading about the progress that has been made…
