THE SECRET BEHIND THE NAME
The three of us first met in the year 2008 in Nigeria. We were a part of a volunteer program for an NGO, that was conducting a wellness mission to fight against Leprosy in Africa. That is when our journey started. It left such a lasting impression on us, that when we started the blog, we immediately knew what to name it. The nig is leprosymission-nig.org actually stands for Nigeria to represent the place where it all started.
