15-year-old Pankaj would often look at his right foot and ask himself why his ulcer did not heal. He has seen many doctors in his native village in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh. Their ointments and antibiotics did not work, rather his ulcer got worse. He often sat by himself as he could not go out and play.
Imagine the relief the kitchen staff of TLM Naini Hospital, in Allahabad, Uttar Pradesh, who make over 400 Chapathis for 150 hospital in-patients every day, have when they received a ‘roti making machine’, which will make the Chapathis in minutes!
It has changed now!
The Leprosy Mission Trust India’s (TLMTI) Naini Hospital, in Uttar Pradesh, along with TLMTI’s CREATE project organised a blood donation camp on April 14 at the hospital. Students of Motilal Nehru National Institute of Technology, Rotary Club, and Evangelical Union students, Allahabad, took part in the camp. The camp was organised to collect blood for free supply to leprosy patients undergoing treatment at the hospital.
