The first project that the Gunvati J. Kapoor Foundation supported was to the Bombay Leprosy Project by providing needed medications to leprosy patients.

What many people do not know is that leprosy is one of the most treatable and least infectious diseases, yet in India, there are still many people who are afflicted by Leprosy.

Besides working to care for the medical needs of leprosy patients, the Bombay Leprosy Project’s long-term goal is to improve quality of life. They work towards this goal by using scientific research to uncover the mysteries of the disease.
