Operation Shahdara has 3 different areas:
1) Community Based Rehabilitation
Community Based Rehabilitation helps set up leprosy affected families with their own business. These businesses include tailoring, weaving, a small shop, rickshaw taxi and many others.
2) Catch Them Young
Catch Them Young is a project that sponsors young people by sending them to school. Education will give these young people a great start in life and will provide a good future for their families.
3) Low Cost Housing
Low Cost Housing at Shahdara provides leprosy affected families with good quality basic houses. This gives families a home where they can live and perhaps carry on a small family business.
Why not get involved by doing a fundraiser to raise some money for these projects. You could organise it within your school, your youth organisation, or you could just do something yourself!
If you do raise some money send it in to us at this address:
