Paul Brand grew up in the Kolli Malai hills in India. He was determined never to leave India and never to be a doctor like his father – especially to lepers. Paul came back to India with a medical degree and there were patients waiting for him – leprosy patients. From then on he devoted his life to their care … even to the point of making them special shoes! Paul’s faith in God, his love for mankind and his medical abilities gave those who suffered from leprosy a new life – and hope.
