I have closely watched performance of The Leprosy Mission Trust India for nearly one decade. The contributions of TLMTI network hospitals and research establishment are highly significant. These are in terms of providing very good quality services with compassion to persons affected by leprosy, identifying gaps in the management practices and offering solutions, working closely with NLEP, and finally carrying out high quality leprosy research by competing for projects from Indian and international agencies. TLMTI has made deep impact on all counts. Lot more expectations in future.
TLMTI is touching many lives with their warmth and love. Their compassionate approach, coupled with a holistic, inclusive, and inventive vision, is fast spreading love and dignity. TLMTI's work can’t be rated, it’s beyond measurement, it’s deep and whole
