Jesuit Mission supports the Loyola Catholic College of Culion, a beautiful island to the south-west of Manila. From the early 1900s Culion was the largest leper colony in the world. While Hansen's Disease (leprosy) has been virtually eradicated, the descendants of the lepers who were originally exiled to the island still live there. Culion is an island of displaced people, and Loyola College Culion is the Jesuit response to the need for quality education and training of a largely forgotten people. The Jesuits also run an outreach program among the indigenous Tagbanua people who live on the surrounding islands.
