History of Vasutha

This is the story of Vasutha in Northern Sri Lanka: 'During difficult times, we were regularly visited by the KKM (the partner organisation of the Sri Lankan Lepramism Mission). They helped us spiritually, emotionally and in many other ways. Thanks to the Lepramism Mission and the KKM, we have our own water source and toilet in our home. I am always happy to tell others about this. I do not want anyone to experience the trauma and sadness that we had to go through. But everything works in our favour if we take it with a hopeful attitude and spirit!"
