Salgadia Happy & Holy Home Society also operates a large Leper Colony with 50 adults and their 115 children. Very few organizations are reaching out in a concerted and strategic effort to touch the many hundreds of lepers that live a miserable existence in Orissa and West Bengal.  We feed/clothe and medicate about 600 lepers in 6 different centers.
