Welcome to Shanthi Gramam

[slideshow custom=true]

Shanthigramam – literally “village of peace”,  is a haven for aged, destitute persons who once had leprosy. These people continue to suffer due to inadequate attention during the active phase of the disease and are left with permanent deformities. With their visible deformities they become a source of contempt for their own family members.

The home grew out of concern for these old, disfigured, rejected leprosy patients by those who understood their deeper need for love and compassion, apart from shelter and care.

‘Lord support us all the day longof this troubled life,
Until the shadows lengthenand the evening comes
and the busy world is hushed;
until the fever of life is o’er
And out work is done.
Then, Lord, in thy mercy,
Grant us a safe lodging, holy rest, and peace at the last’

Amen
