NGO Video Storytelling: Shiveram and Samana are Defeating Leprosy

Recently I travelled to Nepal. While I was there I met a girl named Samana, as well as her dad, Shiveram. I had the opportunity to hear their stories and ask questions about how Leprosy has affected them. Having heard their stories and discussed with the The Leprosy Mission Australia team, we knew that this story needed to reach a wider audience than just us.

We filmed this story across three days while in Hetauda, Nepal. I was inspired by the change that is taking place in Shiveram and Samana's communities, and I hope you are too!
