Hi my name is Kyana. In January 2012, I started a small feeding program called Love for Leprosy. The idea came from a day where I saw a group of beggers on the side of the road who had leprosy. Their harsh conditions struck me and all I could think of was is there something I can do. Something to show them love and compassion in a practical way.  Those suffering with Leprosy are normally outcasted in their society due to stigmas that come with the disease. The results finacially from these stigmas cause them to resort to begging for a menial income. They will lack taking care of their open wounds while begging in hopes to attain more money while begging. My heart for the feeding program was to not only to give them a meal they didn't have to beg for, but a meal they can't afford and rarely get to enjoy "CHICKEN CURRY!" Chicken curry is a celebration food for them! When we do these "feasts" my desire is for want it to be a day they can just enjoy, and not have to be on the streets. In November I can't think of a better way to celebrate the season of Thankfulness than giving a Chicken Curry feast to this special group of people. The colony where we'll be having the feast has around 700 people. This includes the families of those who lives have been affected by having a family member with leprosy, and live with them. Come help spread the joy of Thanksgiving this year to one of our precious Leprosy Colonies! 

-All my Love,

Kyana
