Thank you for your interest in the work of the
Maya Leprosy Fund, set up in 2003 by Alasdair & Moira Murray for
the purpose of raising funds to be used to improve the living
standards of people affected by leprosy residing in Khokana
Leprosarium, a colony of leprosy sufferers situated outside the
city Kathmandu, Nepal.
As our aims and objectives in the Khokana area
are now largely met, and the health needs of the residents are
being catered for by a locally based charity run by a Nepali
doctor, MLF will support the people of Khokana by continuing to
run the Khokana Women's Group, a small income generation project
which gives some women in Khokana an opportunity to work , earn
some money and regain dignity and self worth.
Starting in 2008 MLF has been seeking other ways
to help leprosy affected people in other parts of Nepal where
needs are even greater and more acute than Khokana and we are
using our links with another locally based charity organisation,
Nepal Leprosy Trust to identify those who require assistance.
In our newsletter we will inform our
supporters about the people who have been brought to our attention
and whom we have been able to help.
We invite you to explore the site and find out
more about the work of the project, view photos, and read our
