When I lived in Yemen I knew of a leper colony founded by the Sisters of Charity of Mother Teresa. It was called the City of Light situated near the town of Taiz.
Just like in biblical times, lepers are shunned by society and have to take care of themselves until they die. These nuns taught them to till the ground and became more or less self-sufficient.
I understand that leprosy is not the dreaded desease it once was - it is not curable but it can be made non-communicable. Yet, the problem in Arkansas is a serous one.
Ah, how wonderful multi-culturalism can be. Thank the feds with their nationally destructive immigration policy.
Leprosy is caused by bacteria. It is cured with antibiotics. The nerve and tissue damage cannot be reversed, but the disease is relatively easy to cure.
“Yet, the problem in Arkansas is a serous one.”
Not all that series.
This problem might be an ecomonic-revitalization-shot-in-the-arm for
one Democrat’s stompin’ grounds! Time to reopen the facilities.
(and yes, I’m being facetious)
