Trapped In a Former Leper Colony
Luo Zhongrong, 59, sat in front of his hut, snapping dry sticks. A worn walking stick lay on the ground within his reach. His physical features — claw-like hands, drooping wrists and red eyes all point to the stigma that he had suffered for decades, as a patient who has recovered from leprosy.
Luo has lived in the tiny village of Kantong in Yunnan province, on the southwestern edge of China, for over 30 years after he was left there by his family. His parents and his wife have never visited him.
