Changing the lives of people affected by disease, poverty and prejudice.
We are a UK registered international charity focusing on people who find themselves trapped by disease, poverty and prejudice and we help them to improve their health, lives and livelihoods.Driven by our focus on leprosy, our purpose is to enable children, women and men affected by neglected diseases to transform their lives and overcome poverty and prejudice.Working on the ground in India, Bangladesh and Mozambique we treat, educate and rehabilitate, and through this give a voice to people living on the margins of society. 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.
