Cared for with Love

With the support of a group of New Zealand Rotarians, leprosy victims and their families in Tanzania are receiving the care they deserve.

When PDG Stuart Batty and the late John Somerville travelled to Tanzania in 2001, their journey took them to the Upendo Rehabilitation Home for Leprosy Sufferers in Maji ya Chai. The centre was home to 150 men, women and children, including widows of Leprosy victims and families where both parents suffered the debilitating, though curable, condition.

The sisters, with Rotary’s support, further prepare the children for formal schooling and encourage residents to realise their potential despite their circumstances.
