Lepra News Spring 2021

Our Spring 2021 edition of Lepra News is out! Read now!

In this issue we focus on the sacrifices made by people affected by leprosy, and the importance of giving back.

People affected by leprosy may be forced to give up their jobs, family, homes, good health, and this means they often give up hope too. 

Across the globe, millions of people are suffering from the effects of leprosy, afraid to come forward for treatment. Lepra will not give up on the missing millions.
