People with leprosy are sent to isolated villages where they are abandoned and isolated from society. The Shalom Leprosy Compassion Ministry has a heart for these people and organizes groups of volunteers to travel to leprosy villages and provide medical, living, and psychological assistance.
On Feb. 8, Dr. Liang, the founder of Shalom, and volunteers raised some funds and bought 30 pairs of rubber boots for a leprosy village in Yiliang. They also distributed shoe-pads donated by Japanese doctors who use them to better protect their patients' feet.
