Zhaojue moving!

Deep in the high mountain of Sichuan province, the Zhaojue Leprosarium has recently moved to a new site in February. Built by local government, the new Leprosarium is a multi-building complex with a hospital and school. The former dormitories were built by CRSS in 2002 (10-year ago). Zhaojue is one of the sites where CRSS & partner have frontline workers stationed to provide service to the leprosy-affected community there.
