Changing the lives of people affected by disease, poverty and prejudice.
Lepra is a UK registered international charity working to transform the lives of people affected by leprosy.
Through early diagnosis, intervention and support, our purpose is to enable children, women and men affected by neglected diseases to take back control of their lives and overcome the poverty and prejudice disease brings.Working on the ground in India, Bangladesh and Mozambique we treat, educate and rehabilitate, people affected by leprosy and other neglected diseases, supporting them to learn new skills, regain their independence and have a voice in their community. We work regardless of caste, religion or race.
Our models draw on evidence gained through our 90 years’ experience and our approach to community engagement delivers real change to people’s lives.
