World Leprosy Day - 30th January 2019

World Leprosy Day is observed internationally every year in January to increase the public awareness of the Leprosy or Hansen's Disease. This day was chosen in commemoration of the death of Gandhi, the leader of India who understood the importance of leprosy. 

In 2019, we will celebrate it on January 30 and our children will be there at The Leprosy Mission Hospital to participate in a rally to raise awareness on Leprosy. The rally will cover a distance of 5 kms from The Leprosy Mission Hospital in Kolkata and end at the same place. 

This year's the theme is Zero Disabilities in girls and boys and Udayan will be 'live' on Facebook at the event ... tune in at
