Irish field trip to Lalgadh – Day 3 in Manara

Irish field trip September 2019  to Lalgadh and its surrounding villages – Day 3 Manara.
The new community hall in Manara due to the Village Alive Programme is a sight to behold!
New community hall in Manara, thanks to the community and the Village Alive Programme.
The local government has already promised to come to the hall three times a month for immunisations, general health check -ups and maternal and child health visits.
Hari Choudury has run the Manara Self Help Group for seven years with great enthusiasm despite facing the effects of leprosy. For this reason he was chosen to be the coordinator of the Village Alive Programme in Manara. With great results already from the first year of the programme we can’t wait to see what lies ahead for Hari and his community!
The Village Alive Programme is a three programme and is part funded by Irish Aid with matched donor funding.
