Upendo Leprosy Home

Upendo Leprosy Home is a local facility is designed to accommodate individuals suffering from leprosy, as well as their families.  The Upendo Leprosy Home has been sponsored and actively run by the Rotary Club of Arusha, which is linked to the Rotary Club in Brampton, Ontario. MedOutreach provides medical and dental screenings to those living in the home. Major components of MedOutreach’s role at the home are the provision of daily wound care and a range-of-motion exercise program.  Donations such as medications, medical supplies and knitted goods are also provided by our team. In addition, the nursing and medical students arrange home-based visits to patients who require advanced care.
