The story of Rameswor
When Rameswor heard that he had leprosy, he was filled with fear that his relatives would face the same fate. Fortunately, his doubts were soon cleared up.
My family and I are closely monitored
“My wife and I live in the same house with our three children, two children-in-law, and six grandchildren. A doctor came by to examine us all. This gave me some peace.
A doctor visited us to examine my family for leprosy
However, when the doctor told me that my son had leprosy too, at first I was shocked. But then I mostly felt relieved that it had been discovered in time. My other family members received a preventative treatment against leprosy. The risk that they too become infected, has now been greatly reduced. I pray for them every day.

I used to grow rice and corn on the plot adjacent to our house, but it became increasingly challenging for me to do my work. I lost the strength in my hands and feet, and my body is covered in sores. I need to rest so they can heal, but I just can’t. How else will we eat?
The doctor made it very clear that if I want to get better, I should be careful to take my medication
The doctor made it very clear that if I want to get better, I should be careful to take my medication. He also showed me how to best care for my ulcers and protect them. He keeps a close eye on my family and me.”
