New Wine Church set up and manages the Shalom Nagar Lepers Colony in Chennai, India, which is rated by the Indian authorities as one of the best leper care facilities in all of India.

It is a residential estate housing 55 lepers and about 100 other members of their families, offering them a life of dignity, self-empowerment and the opportunity for a better future often denied them by the general society that treats them as outcasts.

The facility provides free feeding, accommodation and health care to the residents and offers a safe environment to develop their skills, become economically fruitful and produce items for sale to the wider community.

Second-generation family members in Shalom Nagar have had the opportunity to pursue and achieve their university degrees.

We invite you to partner with us in lifting many more people in India out of poverty and deprivation, assisting them to maximise their potential.
