In this photo taken on Thursday, July 8, 2010, the hands of former leprosy patient Adelino Quelo, 68, are seen as he crouches outside his hut in Malelat, West Oe-cusse, overlooking the East Nusa Tengara province of Indonesia. His fingers, toes and parts of his hands and feet are missing. Only stubby knobs remain, keeping him from standing, gripping and bathing himself. East Timor is one of just two places worldwide where leprosy is still widespread, and the country has now declared war on the age-old scourge. (AP Photo/Wong Maye-E)
