... willing is not enough ... we have to do. – J.W.v. Goethe

“I will never forget the image of a leprosy patient with her damaged hands or hugging a street child. Before travelling to Kolkata, I thought I had the right to worry about my financial existence. The open-hearted way people smiled at me there made me feel both humble and ashamed. My own fears blinded me to what really matters. This is something I want to change.”

“I give away small bags made by hand (in line with fair trade) in Kolkata when a patient undergoes prophylaxis treatment in my practice. This handmade item forms the means of existence from those less fortunate in Kolkata.”
