Peace at Last … Muniamma does remember a time when she really was happy. She was married and had two children. Life had meaning and purpose. Things changed when she developed leprosy; her husband and daughter died. Her son married but she was ill-treated by her daughter-in.law. “There was no one to take care of me” she said. The disease took its toll and her fingers were badly damaged. In addition she had a hearing impairment. Her problems progressed; she was affected both physically and psychologically. She could no longer work and support herself. Fortunately, she was considered for admission to Shanthigramam and was given a cottage. At 76 years, she was content; her needs were met. After living in the home for 15 years, she passed away peacefully and was laid to rest in the premises of the home. Shanthigramam gave her the opportunity to live and die in dignity.
With your help, more persons like Muniamma can also hope to find peace at last.
