Embracing the Leper

2003 NR

Secular Franciscan Jim Flickinger takes you on a heart-wrenching trip to the city of Manaus, Brazil, once a tropical paradise that's now so saturated with poverty and disease that it's often called "The Green Hell." Ministering to the city's countless victims of leprosy -- and paying special attention to the children -- Flickinger and members of his Amazon Relief charity do everything they can to improve the quality of life for the afflicted.
