Children belonging to Leprosy parents, orphans and children from poor families are looked after in these homes. The first Home was started in 1945 for ten little boys, in response to a desperate plea of leprous parents, by Dr John C Taylor and his wife form Mission to the World. There are now four Homes in surrounding villages and towns. The largest Home is in Bhogpur where there are more than 400 children. Until recent years, Dr Taylor’s son, Mr Gordon Taylor and his wife were running the Bhogpur Home, but now Dr David Fiol and his wife Eleanor are in charge.
