Stand up Luri Rokwe

Luri Rokwe is a leprosy community on the outskirts of the capital, Juba. The project, co-funded by Jersey Overseas Aid, is working in four key areas: health and self-care to reduce disability among people affected by leprosy; livelihood support, including agricultural training and inputs and micro-credit; education, including school improvement, teacher training and material support for the most vulnerable children; and social support and empowerment, working through the church and disabled people's organisations to provide counselling and to encourage solidarity and self-help among people affected by leprosy and people with disabilities.
