The story of Sita in Nepal

Sita is 24 years old. She was diagnosed with leprosy four years ago. She has struggled to get proper care because there is no hospital or treatment in her hometown. She went to the health post for the first time in her life when she felt the symptoms. But there he was recommended a hospital 80 km away, Seti. His brother took him there several times, which was a nightmare. Sita's left hand is the most damaged, with three fingers bent, but she also has problems with her legs.
"I exercise my fingers every day, I take my medication on time. I am much better than I was three years ago!" Don't give up! "I would like to make my dream come true and become a female tailor in the village!"
