Fr. Ignatius Govindu helps restore human dignity by providing care to desperately poor people afflicted with leprosy.
Saint Anthony’s Leper Colony is located in a rural area of India on the Bay of Bengal, where leprosy and discrimination are often inextricable. Lepers, alienated and abandoned by their families and society, receive food, medical care, housing, education and kindness. La Madre supports Fr. Govindu’s mission where $2000.00 can provide a home to shelter a leper family.
$360.00 per year can educate, feed and provide medical care for a poor child.
New homes for those with leprosy are currently under construction.
