Echoes from the valley of hope

Mother Mangalam started to serve the patients when she followed Dr Swami Satyananda, the founder of Pure Life Society, to the Sungai Buloh Settlement as his assistant in 1951. During her first visit, she was shocked and heart-broken to see so many disabled leprosy patients.
The current site of the Pure Life Society was not even ready yet when the welfare home took in the first batch of children. She said that they had previously taken in a boy who had leprosy and they had to take him out to receive sulphone injections every week. He recovered fully when he was in secondary school, found a good job after graduating and is now a skilled worker. Before he got married, he returned to the welfare home to get her blessing. He has become a grandfather now.
