Notes

"The Colony that Dr Derwich has organised is very good, and I was interested to see that it was more of a colony than a settlement, and was practically self supporting. The lepers, however, are married, although healthy relations do not appear to be living in the colony. … The supervision is very good and I feel sure that in the course of time most of the lepers in the district will be persuaded to come." ("Report by Dr Robert Cochrane on the Leprosy Situation in the Sudan" 23 April 1930)
