MY TESTIMONY, By Dr Asha Masseya
Remember Sujadhe from India? You first met her in April.
When you have leprosy or a disability and live in poverty, your future job prospects are slim. In fact, you may lose your job because of the stigma of leprosy, or the disease may leave you unable to use your hands or walk properly. Not only that, but your children may also have trouble finishing school because your livelihood is gone and you cannot pay for books and uniforms.
