People with leprosy are sent to isolated villages where they are abandoned and forgotten by society. The Shalom Leprosy Compassion Ministry has a special place in its heart for these people and organizes groups of volunteers to travel to villages plagued with leprosy in order to provide medical, living, and psychological assistance. The Shalom Leprosy Compassion Ministry is located in Kunming, Yunnan.
During the national holiday, Shalom invited Mr. Andre, an old friend, to visit 9 old people living in A Ziying and Zhushan. We sent bags of rice to them and cerebrated the holidays with them. We set out early in the morning from Kunming. Taking into account their habits, we visited Lao Li in A Ziying. Then we went to buy rice together. We bought 26kg bags of rice for them. This is not the first time they have received rice from us. The rice from the government is usually in the form of a 10kg bag. Shalom is sincere to its clients. The lepers invited us to visit their village again. Lao Li doesn’t know English, so he held his paper upside down, but he was still so happy to express his gratitude.
We visited 2 villages in one day. One was in the north and another one was in the east. Even though the distance is far, we still enjoy serving our clients.
