Molokai’s Kalaupapa Peninsula is a remote flatland at the base of 1,000- to 2,000-foot cliffs (300-600 m). This is where those suffering from leprosy were banished for the remainder of their lives. Drug therapies were eventually developed so that the patients were no longer contagious and the forced quarantine ended in 1969. From the settlement’s start in 1866 until well after Father Damien arrived, conditions at Kalaupapa were extremely difficult. Damien’s work there soon became known throughout the world, bringing much-needed attention to the plight of the peninsula’s suffering people and conditions gradually improved. His service, devotion, and self-sacrifice led to his being designated Saint Damien of Molokai—the patron saint of those with Hansen’s disease.
