Learning about Leprosy in India

During their regular breakfast meeting on March 19 the members of the Rotary Club of Cashiers Valley were provided an informative presentation  from Susan Witty of Sylva about volunteering  in a leprosy community located in Calcutta, India.   The mission-based organization was originally founded by Mother Teresa in 1953 and gradually developed into the Gandgi Prem Niva Leprosy Center with more than 650 residents, patients and elders associated with its programs and services today.  Susan has been volunteering for this Missions of Charity project for the past five years.
