Mr Laksmi Singh ( Founder & Managing Director )

From the Founder’s Diary

Our freedom fighters have been dynamic individuals- not just dedicated to the cause of national self-determination, but also to social development at the community and individual level. Mr Laksmi Singh was one such freedom fighter from the state of Bihar, who started Gandhi Kusth Nivaran Pratisthan in 1963. Initially, he and his team only worked with leprosy patients. Graually, the NGO expanded its area of operation. Later in 2002, his son Mr Barun Kumar Singh joined the organisation as the joint secretary. His altruism is a legacy he proudly carries over from his father, and continues the honourable work of helping patients regain a sense of control over their lives.

Aside from the pain and suffering of diseases such as AIDS and leprosy, there is a social stigma attached to these life-threatening diseases as well. Patients are ostracized, and many in their vicinity choose to maintain their distance, regardless of the risk of infection. Several disabled people meet the same fate, being excluded from public life in ways that can be extremely psychologically damaging. 

Gandhi Kusth Nivaran Pratisthan extends the aid to these survivors that they are missing. It was started in 1963, in Bhabua in the Kaimur district of Bihar and is currently headed by Mr Barun Kumar Singh. The NGO works towards AIDS control. Patients are given injections, entirely free of cost. It helps leprosy patients avail the treatment they need as well. 

The organisation also prevents visual impairment, by organising free check ups and consultations for the residents of Bhabua. 

So far, more than 230 people have been helped by the initiatives of Gandhi Kusth Nivaran Pratisthan.
