Alliance Development Trust Partners with The Leprosy Mission to Fight Leprosy in Sri Lanka

Published on

The ADT that worked towards supporting communities affected by leprosy with livelihood support, has now translated their action into a more concentrated effort to fight the spread and stigma attached to the disease.

In the latter half of the year 2013, the Alliance Development Trust partnered with The Leprosy Mission to launch a systematic leprosy awareness education program that is anticipated will create awareness around the country on the disease, it’s spread, treatment, commonly held misconceptions etc.
