CONTEXT

Palamaner is a town of about 50,000 in the south of the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. Although Palamaner is not a very large, it is made up of shanty towns where people live in conditions of misery and disease. These are places where leprosy is still a reality and social differences produce situations of severe social exclusion, the consequences of which affect the weakest — the sick, the poor, and children.

FRANCISCANS IN PALAMANER

The St. Louis fraternity offers ongoing help to the people of Palamaner, without making any distinction as regards ethnicity or religion.
The friars provide health care for people suffering from leprosy, they promote housing construction, and distribute meals to the most impoverished families. They also offer primary schooling for children, aware that local development is rooted in education.
