Leprosy & disability care in Khartoum

We support the Aburoff Clinic in Khartoum, Sudan's only specialist leprosy centre. Here people affected by leprosy come from across Sudan for treatment. The centre provides support with self-care, as well as acting as a training centre for government staff. There are also regular eye-clinics for people with general eye problems. In 2015 we have explored ways of expanding the project to address socio-economic issues in the Mayo leprosy community near Khartoum.
