Raphael was founded in 1959 with its mission to provide relief from suffering.
Shiv Sadan is a village for cured leprosy patients, where families have their own housing unit. The residents are provided with all the basic necessities of life. In turn, based on their capabilities they assist in Raphael's day-to-day activities like weaving, carpentry, electrical work, plumbing and gardening, leading a life of dignity and contributing to the well being of the community.
