Leper and Tuberculosis Colony

Early in the history of the Eku Baptist Hospital there was an outreach to those that had Hansen disease or Leprosy. These are people that have the same basic needs of us all. They do not want to be treated as outcast. Your doorways of opportunity are available for everyone that can share love and show kindness.

It is an ancient disease that still causes mystery to those that have it and those that encounter them. It can be devastating for the person and the family. Many times the healthy family members must join them until the disease is arrested. You will find that many healthy children must live with the family in these Leper Colonies.

 A place for treatment started by the hospital is within 15 minutes of the hospital. It is also a place for patients with tuberculosis. Modern medications are available to treat the disease but many times the people do not come quick enough to stop the loss of fingers, nose, ears, toes, or limbs that have to be amputated.

A visit to show love and to create a learning opportunity for children and adults as to the Love of God raises hope and faith with the residence. So many fear them that when you do come they are so grateful and receive with gratitude the message of Jesus Christ. You will see that they are still enterprising people that work with what they have.

You can minister to them by sharing Bible stories, taking videos, children Bible programs with crafts, sharing the story of Jesus, praying for them, hugging them, or letting them talk to you. Cool drinks of water, a new cloth, a visit, a parcel of food, a helping hand are all extensions of the heart of Jesus toward all peoples. You can be that extension.


“And as you go, preach, saying, The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, caste out devils, freely ye have received, freely give.” (Matthew 10:7-8)
