Help bring medical aid and nutrition to leprosy patients

Join Us in Making a Difference

At Embrace a Village, we’re dedicated to making a tangible impact on the lives of individuals affected by leprosy in India. Our mission is simple: to provide holistic care, support, and empowerment to those who need it most.

What We Do

In many communities, individuals affected by leprosy face immense challenges. Often ostracized from their homes and villages, they struggle to survive in difficult circumstances. At Embrace a Village, we’re committed to transforming their lives for the better.

We believe in empowering communities from within. Through locally-led initiatives, we work to bring about sustainable change and improve the lives of those affected by leprosy. Our comprehensive approach includes:

Medial Aid

Over 400 per month.


Averate of 3,500 people fed per month


170 students in our tutoring program

Expanding Our Reach in 2024

Community Empowerment

We support local communities through initiatives like community farming projects, providing opportunities for sustainable livelihoods and economic empowerment.

Education and Opportunity

Education is key to breaking the cycle of poverty and stigma. Our educational programs provide children living in leprosy colonies with after-school tutoring and nutritious meals, empowering them to pursue a brighter future.

Self-Care and Support

We empower patients to take ownership of their health and well-being through education and support. By teaching self-care practices and providing essential medical care, we help prevent permanent disabilities and promote overall well-being. Leprosy is caused by the bacteria Mycobacterium leprae which leads to nerve damage and loss of sensation.

A person who has contracted the disease cannot feel pain and is at risk of injury and infection, particularly in the extremities. It is pretty common for those with leprosy to have wounded and disfigured feet, and if left untreated, amputation may become necessary.

Our on-staff shoemaker provides our patients with special shoes to prevent further trauma and infection to their feet. Shoes are handmade and customized to meet the specific needs of the individual patient.
