The Karuna Project along with a team of government Leprosy Technicians on 24.03.2023 carried out a Leprosy Detection Survey and Medical Camp at two Adivasi brick kilns in Bhiwandi, Thane District. As a result, 3 new cases of leprosy were detected. Two men & one woman in the age group between 22 to 26 years old tested positive for leprosy. Multi-Drug-Therapy for all three has been initiated and the team will follow up in the coming months.
The Karuna team also provided medical treatment for 25 adults and children who were ailing with different sicknesses at the brick kilns.
