Damien The Leper Society - Hội Thiện Nguyện Người Cùi Đa Miên
Mục đích chính của Hội Thiện Nguyện Người Cùi Đa Miên là để giảm bớt những đau thương gây ra bởi bệnh cùi bằng cách ngăn chặn sự phát triển và chữa chạy những di chứng của bệnh cùi. Our Main Objective The main objective of the Damien the Leper Society is to ease human suffering from leprosy by helping to stop the progression of the disease and by ministering to its residual effects. Our Vision We envision a world where people who are afflicted with the disease are cured and helped to live in dignity with the disease residual effects. We envision that the children of lepers are provided with proper nutrition, education, and given a chance for a life without leprosy. We truly believe that in doing the above, we are helping the least of our brothers and sisters to be free of suffering from this ancient disease. Our Approach In serving the lepers, the Damien the Leper Society has adopted a holistic approach. In every leper, D.L.S. sees a total human being, not just a creature with a disease to be cured. We believe that, in order to help the lepers to live the lives free of leprosy, we not only have to bring the cure but also have to help the lepers to live with the after effect and to prevent leprosy from spreading to the next generations.
