Persons afflicted or affected by leprosy & their families should be made to move equally within their own communities and victimised or marginalised no more
We help them to remain or re-enter society and their community with Dignity and Confidence, devoid of stigma or discrimination at social or other levels due to their connection with leprosy.
To be an organisation which provides relief and assists the rehabilitation of leprosy afflicted and affected persons and closely connected persons who can be described as being the “Poorest of the Poor” (“most needy”). They are those who in reality need Surol’s support in the Physical, Psychological, Social, Spiritual and Economic Spheres. They are people who essentially need to overcome the social stigma and negative attitudes of people towards leprosy (Hansen’s Disease) from time immemorial.
We are committed and dedicated to establishing a society where persons affected by leprosy find themselves acceptable as equal partners with all others in the community and society at large.
To be an organisation that promotes the reduction of the incidence of leprosy itself and also works to prevent and reduce all manner of adverse after-effects of leprosy afflicted and affected persons, their family members and other relations or persons linked with or associated with them.
To disseminate information and promote Awareness regarding Leprosy which will encourage a more complete knowledge and understanding of the truth regarding the disease of leprosy. Leprosy in the past was dreaded since no cure was known and thought to be highly infectious/ contagious till the late Nineteenth Century; and today since the late 1930s we have definite methods of diagnosis, treatment and cure which are obtainable free of cost from all government hospitals in Sri Lanka.
