Lepra

We are a UK-based international charity working to beat leprosy. This disease affects the most vulnerable people in the world, causing life-changing disabilities, but there is a cure.
More than 600 people are diagnosed and start treatment each day, over 50 of these are children.
But, due to fear and lack of knowledge, there are over 3 million people across the world living with undiagnosed leprosy and every day the disease causes more damage to their health, livelihood and future.
We work directly with communities in Bangladesh, India and Mozambique to find, diagnose and rehabilitate children, women and men affected by leprosy. Through raising awareness, pushing for early detection and reducing stigma we support people so they can transform their lives.
