For 145 years the Leprosy Mission has been working in India to bring healing and hope to people affected by leprosy. Come hear about this first hand from Dr Famkima Darlong, Head of Healthcare at The Leprosy Mission India.
As a Christian doctor, Dr Famkima sees his profession as a calling from God and always strives to live according to Scriptural Values. Dr Famkima is Head of Healthcare for The Leprosy Mission Trust India, overseeing the work of the fourteen Leprosy Mission Hospitals in India. He is a postgraduate medical professional with over 25 years of working experience in ophthalmology and leprosy.
Today, India still has the highest number of people affected by leprosy – around 1/4 million new cases each year; and millions more live with disability and ongoing health issues stemming from the disease. Come and listen to Dr Famkima’s powerful story of individuals’ lives changed, families reconciled and children set free from stigma, fear and disadvantage.
