Shalom Leprosy Compassion Ministry: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.
There were less activities in September due to weather and transportation. On Mid-Autumn Day, Shalom organized visits to Shuigou leprosy village of Xundian county and Yang Shaoguang, a leper living with his family in Songming. We also brought festival greetings, gifts and medicines to over 30 lepers.
On September 27, Liang Ping and 3 volunteers visited Shuigou leprosy village. They hoped to bring medical help to the lepers inMid-Autumn Festival. It is an important festival in China. The activity would brought love and warmness of TFish to the lepers.
Liang Ping was giving shoes pads to Lao Hu which had been brought from Japan by Doctor Tongkou, and she also brought antibiotics to him. Liang Ping hoped to give them more help.
Liang Ping was explaining the usage of medicines to Lao Hu. They need medicines and doctors. We hope more doctors would come and help them. Lepers were waiting for Liang Ping on the yard as usual, hoping Shalom could help them to relief pains brought by the illness.Liang Ping was doing physical examinations and distributing medicines according to their needs, hoping to relief their physical pains so that they would have a relaxing festival.
Shalom volunteers were saying goodbye to the lepers. Their next goal was Yang Shaoguang in Songming county. He lives with his family. Liang Ping had been concerning about his life and health. She brought some medicines to him and spent the festival with him.
Yang is lucky. He lives on a hill near the family. He raised fish in a pond. The villagers would came and do fishing, which generated some income. With compassion, more people go fishing here. Shalom can focus on more needy persons. We just gave him some medical services. We hope other lepers could as lucky as Yang.
These are activities in September. In October, Shalom would arrange more activities and complete project activities as soon as possible. We would send more cares to more lepers on behalf of TFish.
