This is Purna Bhadur. He makes all of the braces, prosthetic legs and hands, gloves, shoes, crunches and so many other items for people affected with leprosy. He has been making these items for over 30 years.
He also makes these amazing prosthetic hand tools for the people affected with leprosy. This item in this photo allows people without hands to write and eat with a spoon and fork. He also makes one for sweeping and cleaning your home. It is truly amazing that with his talents he allows the people affected by leprosy the opportunity to do every day tasks.
