Lepers are sent to isolated places without families or friends to support them emotionally of physically. They are abandoned and forgotten by society. The Shalom Leprosy Compassion Ministry has a heart for these people and organizes groups of volunteers to fundraise and travel to them and provide them with medical, living, and psychological assistance.

It is so exciting that Shalom Love Leprosy Service has been promoted as a Strategic Partner. It is not only a glory but a responsibility for the Shalom team. Our goals include how to better portray our image in the process of serving leprosy patients, how to offer effective help, and how to be open, transparent, normative, and efficient during the work of Shalom Love Leprosy Service. I hope the work of the Shalom team can get the positive affirmation of Transparent Fish Fund and more friends. We are thankful for Transparent Fish Fund’s trust and help.
The Good News of the Recovered Patients Appreciation
On April 15, Ping Liang and volunteers changed a medical prescription of the US- Medihoney for five patients who had serious ulcers in Zhushan and Yangjuangou of Yiliang. On April 23, Liang Ping and volunteers returned the five patients to their village. They offered drinking water to the patients, and meanwhile they focused on examining the condition of the patients.
The results excited everyone. The five anabrosis patients were smelly and sore, and sometimes they had fever before using the U.S. medicine. But now the feeling of severe pain was relieved. The pain disappeared by the fifth day and they never had fever. The ulcer area had shrunk and some wounds had grown new granulation tissue. The recovered patients who took the medicine were positive of the effect of the medicine and hoped we could continue to offer help until their ulcer was completely cured.
Due to the restriction of drug sources, we can only help those patients in Zhushan, Yangjuangou, and Aziying in Kunming. We are going to offer help in hope that their wounds can be completely cured.
