Kevin’s in India!


Kevin Baugh, Programmes Funding Officer, is currently on his first Indian field visit to monitor The Leprosy Mission projects. He’s been thrown in at the deep end and in the first few days of his trip he has already visited The Leprosy Mission hospital in Kolkata, taken a seven hour train journey to see Bankura Vocational Training Centre, visited the home for elderly people affected by leprosy, seen The Leprosy Mission’s hospital in Purulia and then travelled all the way back to Kolkata for flight transfers to the next region where we work – exhausting stuff! He’s just finished visiting our partner projects at Brighter Future in Vizianagaram, from where he reports: ‘All well here – having amazing time – India is all total assault on all your senses & emotions. I have fallen in love with the Indian people! I have been blown away by Brighter Future – the staff are amazing too – in fact I have been saying that where ever I have been’

We wish Kevin all the best for the rest of his trip and hope he doesn’t wear that shirt back in the office !!
