Promise Nepal supports and works closely with Anandaban Leprosy Hospital, the largest leprosy hospital in Nepal. Our association with the hospital began with the funding of a specialised wound care course, which focused on the techniques required to care for wounds specific to leprosy affected people.
The BLP was established in 1976 to improve the quality of life of leprosy patients entirely through public donations. Since then, the BLP has worked relentlessly to assist the Indian government’s National Leprosy Eradication Programme, and to implement the policies of this health scheme.
LLSC delivers services and support to people affected by leprosy, and the wider community. Through its Stigma Elimination Programme (STEP), the centre provides medical care, capacity building and community awareness activities in the surrounding vicinity to help fight the stigma associated with leprosy.
READ Nepal is a non-governmental non-profit organisation, established in 2005 by Mr. Raj Kumar Shah and individuals affected by leprosy. Its mission is to create a stigma-free society for leprosy and physically or mentally impaired people to ensure equal opportunities for them.
