Unreported World: India’s Leprosy Heroes

Unreported World: India’s Leprosy Heroes

We’re really excited about this programme on Channel 4 tomorrow 25 March.  It starts at 7.30pm, so don’t miss it!

This award-winning current events programme is the first of a new series and reporter Seyi Rhodes meets some of the remarkable people fighting back against leprosy in India, where millions affected by the disease are pushed to the margins of society and ostracised by their families and friends. 

It features the work of The Leprosy Mission including interviews with Dr Premal Das, superintendent at our Naini hospital, the largest leprosy referral hospital in India.  The programme also features people who have been shunned because of leprosy, the surgical techniques used to correct deformity caused by leprosy, and the bravery of patients striving to overcome stigma.

You can donate to our work, safely and securely, through JustGiving.
