In this photo taken on Thursday, July 8, 2010, teepee-shaped huts, one of which belongs former leprosy patient Adelino Quelo, 68, sit against a wall of mountains in Malelat, West Oe-cusse, overlooking the East Nusa Tengara province of Indonesia. Adelino Quelo's 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)
