A huge thank you for all your wonderful support during 2015. It has been a challenging year for everyone in Nepal. Our colleagues in Lalgadh have sent us on this lovely photo and greeting.
HAPPY CHRISTMAS and a BLESSED MEANINGFUL 2016!
‘Striving to shine the Christmas Light of love, compassion, help and healing all year round to the desperately needy in the Himalayan heights and foothills of Nepal – that’s the “strive” of Nepal Leprosy Trust – Lalgadh Leprosy Hospital and Services Centre (NLT/LLSC) during 2015.
It’s been a struggle with earthquakes, floods (of leprosy and needy patients), landslides, delivering emergency relief – food, warmth and shelter – to thousands of hungry destitute remote mountain-area families, hindered and blocked by strikes, political violence, busy busy hospital work, helping sick children, and collapsed schools, and always more and more leprosy and sick poor needy patients, young and old ….
Striving to reach out all year with that Christmas Light and flame of compassion and love, bringing healing, wholeness, help, survival, restoration, to many thousands – leprosy affected, and other poor, needy and marginalised folks.
All enabled by heart-warming encouragement, support, prayers and partnership of caring generous churches and dear friends and noble organisations … All of us working together bringing this Light to the desperately needy and sick in this poor dark difficult (but beautiful) Himalayan part of the world.
Christmas love and greetings to you all’ from Dr Graeme Clugston, Medical Director at Lalgadh Leprosy Hospital and Services Centre.
