In 2013 the PCC asked the congregation to nominate Christian charities with projects overseas that the church could partner and support with a large sum of money.
It was decided to support the “Nepal Leprosy Trust’s” Self Care Training Centre as our special charity project. This Christian charity was the front-runner following the lunch and works with people affected by leprosy and their families in Nepal.
The project will teach people who have been physically damaged by leprosy how to manage their disabilities in the context of everyday life. Leprosy is a significant disabler of people in Nepal and the manual nature of their lives can make it very difficult for them to care for limbs and eyes that have lost feeling due to nerve damage caused by leprosy. “Self-care training” provides the skills and knowledge necessary to prevent further disability, whilst still carrying on with normal life to the degree that they can. If you are interested in helping or hearing more, please contact Tina Edwards
