4 new staff members needed for leprosy center in India

Requested by

Madurai Health and Leprosy Relief Centre

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

In the last 21 years, our organization have been serving leprosy patients, giving them free treatment, medicine, dressing materials, clothes, MCR chapel for people affected by leprosy, and rehabilitation services etc. We also give health education to the population regarding communicable diseases of TB, Cholera, Typhoid, HIV / AIDS, Leprosy, water borne diseases and general health care. We also work to find new leprosy cases and give treatment for free.

Our leprosy patients live in their home in different parts of Madurai and Dindigul district. Some patients are not able to do any work, some patients have ulcer in their hands and foots. They cannot go to take treatment in any other place, and some patients’ relatives are segregated from the patient.

We cannot achieve our goal (to cover a bigger area and population) because of lack of staff.

What is your project and how will it help?

Our Madurai Health and Leprosy Relief Centre (MAHELERECEN) is a Non-Governmental and Non-Profitable Social Service Organization, providing charity activities for general health and Leprosy relief work since 1991 in Madurai District, Tamil Nadu, India.

We provide 4 types of work:
1. Health education
2. Leprosy case holding
3. Free treatment
4. Rehabilitation for people affected by leprosy

Our centre provides health education and leprosy awareness programmes to Educational Institutions, industrial workers and also the public. Our total leprosy cases are 422, and out of these cases, there are 95 disabled (deformity) cases. Up to now, we have supported Socio Economic Rehabilitation (SER) for 45 people affected and deformed by leprosy for self-employment.

Since 1991 we have rendered our services in and around the city of Madurai and Dindigul district. Madurai district has a total population of 3 million, out of which we are covering a population of 1 million, in an area of 60 km radius.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

People can partner with us by helping us with funding. Please contact us to learn about how to partner with us.

Our existing donors are supporting us and our leprosy eradication programme, including staff salaries, medicine and dressing material, petrol / fuel for two wheeler, administrative costs, etc.

Please detail the resources that you need.

1. Project coordinator -1 position
2. Field assistant -2 position
3. Accountant cum office assistant -1 position

Funding requested Rs 6,50,000/year (US$ 11,827/year)
