MANILA, Sep 11 2019 (IPS) - Stronger government action to fight stigma and discrimination, more government funding for health and non-health support programmes, and a larger role for people’s organisations in developing policy towards Hansen’s disease treatment and eradication are still needed for eliminating the disease.

வவுனியா பிராந்திய சுகாதார பணிமனையும் இணைந்து – FEB.2019

காவேரி கலா மன்றமும் வவுனியா பிராந்திய சுகாதார பணிமனையும் இணைந்து (Leprosy, peace & Sri Lanka) சமாதானத்தை கட்டியெழுப்புவதற்கான விசேட செயலமர்வு இன்று வவுனியாவில் நடைபெற்ற போது.. 2019... The community which has been by racial contradiction for 40 years has suffered a number of life losses.
Today Peace-making attempts to merge communities have not yet taken up and this continues to be challenging. KKM Leprosy forum for change leprosy people association have decided to help all the affected people in the community to bring peace and unity.
As soon as the community is aware of leprosy, patient they are socially isolated and black listed in the community. The leprosy association has proved that we can break the stigma and live with unconditional love without any discrimination of any cultural and religious barrios and live in peace and unity in our nation.
The following true stories are shared by the leprosy affected members of the People forum for change Leprosy association.


I was born a Singhalese, and once upon a time I was a raciest against the Tamil society. Due to poverty and unemployed I was offered a basis house by the Sri Lankan Government in Vavuniya in Jaffna district in a remote village. I was working as a driver with two kids.
I was affected by leprosy after few years, I was on medication and getting very tired and left my job. Not knowing the full awareness of the diseases, I was lost to this world scared and isolated from the community and rejected. I was suicidal many times. At this time of my devastated life KKM was informed by PHI of Vavuniya for the support. KKM was God send to me with all their unconditional love and support. They made me to continue my medication with all support of nutritious food which gave me strength and self-esteem to my family. I was given a tube well and a motor, coconut seedlings, and other vegetation to start my living. Now I am free of leprosy and able to support my family by selling all the products. Recently I was given a milking cow to earn more income to my family and my kids could have a health life. I can only thank them by being active member in their leprosy programs and not by words.
My wife and I are ashamed of our self for the racial behavior towards Tamil community. We continue to pray for forgiveness. We are always thankful to KKM for giving us a new life. I am always ready to relate this generous story openly to anyone in the Singhalese community. I am always willing to take part in any events in the community at any time.


I am Nagamany. During the war I lost three of my children, living in poverty and resettled back in my village. We lost everything and our land was neglected. At this time,
I was affected by leprosy and lost my eye sight in one eye. I met Amarasinga through KKM leprosy association we shared our sad stories and how we were empowered by KKM gained our self-esteem and strength. As we both are strong comity members Amarasinga gets assistance from his district to help our school children and I do the same from my district. We are all trying to break the stigma of leprosy, detect early symptoms and make our nation free of Leprosy with peace and unity among us.
