With 150 beds and two large outpatients’ clinics, one in the nearby urban area, Anandaban served over 30,000 leprosy and general patients in 2017.
Sadly, Anandaban’s buildings were damaged in the 2015 earthquake but reconstruction of the wards and staff housing is nearly complete – much of this has only been possible thanks to your generous donations!
In 2017, your generosity has helped us, in partnership with other TLM offices around the world, to support a wide variety of initiatives:
- 1,470 leprosy patients received care at Anandaban's three satellite clinics.
- Many leprosy-affected people received training in how to care for their hands, eyes and feet to prevent infection and injury. 1,060 people received footwear, 46 people received prostheses, and 496 people received assisted support devices such as crutches, canes and wheelchairs.
- 159 reconstructive surgeries were carried out at the hospital, restoring mobility and function to people's hands, arms and legs.
