World Leprosy Day 2021

World Leprosy Day takes place on Sunday 31 January 2021 and is the biggest opportunity of the year to raise awareness globally about leprosy.

Leprosy is curable and yet many people affected by this disease don't know there is a cure, and are often isolated away from society. This is needs to change.

We need your support to raise a massive one million pounds so that we can continue our vital work.
