Pharmacy assistant Laxmi is grateful for the boxes of medicines you sent.

In April, your gifts sent 25 boxes of critical medicines and supplies worth $3.3 million to one of our partner hospitals in Nepal.

The medicines you sent are helping people suffering from leprosy as well as many other patients in need.

Twenty-four-year-old Sushma gave birth to her baby only six days ago. She suddenly had a serious case of diarrhea and came to Anandaban hospital for treatment. When she heard that the medicine she received was sent by caring people in the U.S., she said, “That is very thoughtful of them, such kind people in this world.”

Thanks to you, nurse Rama can give medicine to Sushma so she can care for her newborn baby.

“We charge minimal costs for treatment at Anandaban,” says nurse Rama. “And, thanks to the medicines sent to us by American Leprosy Missions, we have also been providing free medication to patients. They are very impressed about this. It draws people to the hospital for treatment. Some patients have said these medicines work better than other medicines.”

Mohan, the pharmacy manager at Anandaban hospital, says, “Some of these medicines are not affordable for most patients. They are beyond grateful to be receiving them.”

The patients and staff thank you from the bottom of their hearts for sending them lifesaving medicines and supplies.
