A New Chapter for Mainudin – December 2019

Mainudin Dafali, now aged 48, suffered stigma and rejection all his life because he came from a family affected by leprosy. His own symptoms began when he was very young but he was not diagnosed with leprosy until he was nine years old, when a healthcare survey team saw him walking across a field and recognized his limp as being caused by leprosy.
