Up until 30 April 2017, we're inviting your church or group to hold a World Leprosy Sunday event and help provide essential new facilities for Purulia Hospital.
A new Outpatients' Department would transform the experience for people affected by leprosy. It would provide a spacious waiting area for patients and their families to rest, many of them after hours or even days of travel. Currently there are only two toilets and no running water, so new toilets and washrooms would improve hygiene and comfort. Brand new treatment rooms would mean more privacy for patients and improved facilities for staff.
You could hold a special collection during your service, make the hospital the recipient of your Lent appeal or host a fundraising event. There are more ideas to be found in our World Leprosy Day resources - which you can order online, or by telephoning 01733 370505.
Your local Regional Manager and volunteer speakers are available for bookings to come and speak at your event - look up their details and get in touch to find out more.
