Bard Leprosy Relief ProjectBard Leprosy Relief Project is committed to supporting a new eco-friendly leprosy village in Kathmandu Nepal, as well as to bringing awareness about the disease to places where leprosy is largely forgotten. This eco village is the fourth Shanti Sewa Griha leprosy village and will occupy the southern corner of Kathmandu where victums of leprosy otherwise have no support. We are raising funds to support the development of a clinic and library in the new village by selling the handicrafts made by lepers in the already established villages. All members of Bard Leprosy Relief Project are passionate about the cause (four among us have a special connection to the project being from Nepal) and motivated to volunteer, raise funds, and spread awareness. We think it is especially important to educate students from Bard and local schools about our project and the implications of leprosy in Kathmandu, because although it is absent from our lives here, leprosy still devastates four countries in the world, among them Nepal.
