Gopal joined New SADLE in 2002 and started working as a gardener. Right now, he works as a security guard and stays in a quarter provided by the organization. Earlier, he was working in India and returned Nepal in 1995 when he became suspicious about the disease. He started taking medicines but left in between as he suffered from jaundice. To his bad fate, instead of taking leprosy medicines, he sought help from witchcrafts which worsened his situation even more. Finally, he started getting treatment for leprosy at Anandaban Hospital since 1997 and went under regular medication. He fell in love and got married with Meena Moktan, who is also working in the tailoring section at New SADLE, in 2005. They have two sons studying in grade six and kindergarten. His fingers and toes are clawed and needs regular dressing. He is happy to work at New SADLE and feels thankful that his children are being schooled. He dreams of a bright future for himself and his children. Join hands with us if you want to help and be a part of this noble cause!
