Leprosy and medical support in India on a gap year Asia
In this unique project we are looking for those with some medical knowledge and experience - be it that you are studying medicine or a practicing doctor or nurse. Here your skills will join those of a dedicated team during your gap year which will be specially focussed on meeting the needs of those who are among ‘the lowest of the low’ - people who live on the edge of society and are suffering from Leprosy and AIDS / HIV. Your gap year in Asia will be spent helping those who are in greatest need as due to their status in society as Dalits (the lowest caste). These people, who are those ignored in the social order, are unable to access medical care in this part of Asia. Due to institutional discrimination, even if they had funds for treatment, many doctors would refuse to treat them. We want you to help the team send out a different message by helping to provide medical support, food and company, to help them to know that they matter; they are not invisible.
