Shanthi Gramam

Shelter for Destitue Leprosy Sufferers

This is a residential home for people who have had leprosy. Often shunned by their families, Shanti Gramam provides a homely environment for these vulnerable people. Here we fund monthly feeding costs and we are looking to improve living conditions in the long term, by fundraising to undertake a complete renovation project.  Over the years the buildings and facilities at Shanthi Gramam have deteriorated significantly. The David Ware Trust, has committed to funding the building development of this village as there was a great need for renovation and provision.  It was our aim to provide these wonderful people with a home that meets all of their needs, with physically, emotionally and mentally. We are delighted to report that since during the pandemic the residents are enjoying the comforts of their new home.
