WHO Goodwill Ambassador's Newsletter For The Elimination Of Leprosy

FROM THE EDITORS: A WORD OF THANKS

The Hindu newspaper reported recently that residents of the Sumanahalli Leprosy Rehabilitation and Training Center had collected money for victims of the earthquake and ensuing tsunami that struck northeast Japan on March 11. The action by the center, in India's Karnataka state, is just one instance of the very many gestures of sympathy, concern and support that have been transmitted to Japan from the leprosy community around the world. On behalf of Goodwill Ambassador Yohei Sasakawa, this newsletter extends its grateful appreciation to all these individuals and organizations for their thoughts, prayers, encouragement and contributions for the people of Japan's Tohoku region.
