Recommendation

“Restoring dignity of the individuals who have suffered leprosy is a global issue today. Restoring family ties lies at the core of this issue and is the most formidable. It is the final piece to complete the human victory against this debilitating disease. This courageous challenge demonstrated by Madam Noraeni Mohamed and Madam Faridah Haji Kasim will not only touch lives but gives hope and inspiration to those out there who are still looking for the missing pieces of their lives”.
