We are just humbled… and honoured by this recognition

Today (February 6), the Hon’ble President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind, conferred the International Gandhi Award 2019 on The Leprosy Mission Trust India (TLMTI), in recognition of its long-standing work with people affected by leprosy, bringing them healing, social inclusion, and a life of dignity, in a function held at Rashtrapati Bhavan, New Delhi.

It doesn’t take much time for fortunes to change

Meet Akash Rambhau Devlkar, a 22-year-old young man from Nandgaon, in Wardha district of Maharashtra.

Akash’s father was affected by leprosy and because of delayed diagnosis of the disease, he had a deformity. Because of the deformity, he could not work, and this has put the family’s day-to-day living in jeopardy. Akash wanted to make something of his life and give a good life to his parents.
