MISSION CAPSULE: “I hope more people like me will be helped by this clinic.” While working at her tailoring shop in Nepal, Sita noticed her hands were starting to feel numb and looked strangely dry as the numbness worsened. Sita grew very sick and weak. Unfortunately, the doctors were unable to diagnose her illness. The future looked a little brighter when Sita learned she was pregnant and eventually delivered a healthy baby girl … but the onset of a severe fever shortly after shattered her fragile hope. Sita tried one last hospital where she was diagnosed with leprosy and was referred to the PWS&D supported Banke Clinic for treatment. There a hopeful journey of recovery got it’s start. “I am getting good treatment, nutritious food and care from the staff” Reports Sita.
