Don't fear me!

A rare glimpse into lives that normally remain hidden away from the world, inside a leper colony. They suffer from a disease that doesn’t just cripple and disfigure, but carries a terrible social stigma. For many, the colony became their home, and the outside world that rejected them seemed a hostile place. With this series, RTD raises awareness of this little-discussed disease and hears first hand from the people who suffer from it.
