Iduguta Leprosy Camp


idguta_1
Iduguta is a small village on the outskirts of the shanty town of Nzega. It is home to around 100 people, 48 of which are children. Only the elderly living there have leprosy (the children have been imunised against it) , however, the illness still carries a stigma and they are ostracised. SIS worked with The Association for Kids In Need (AKIN) to refurbish the 12 houses comprising the village and thereby provide the impoverished people there clean living conditions.


The Pentecostal Church of Sweden has subsequently provided solar panels on the roofs of the houses, and a meeting hall has been built so that the villagers can have a central place to meet.
