Get involved £1 from you, we get two £1 from you, we get two! Donate You can help vital research continue to help more people receive the treatment and care they need In 1996, the BBC children's TV programme, Blue Peter, chose Lepra as their annual TV appeal. Viewers held "Bring and Buy" sales across the country and raised over £2.8 million for people affected by leprosy - one of the most successful Blue Peter appeals of all time! Along with funding projects and new off-road vehicles, this amazing total allowed us to construct our Blue Peter Public Health and Research center (BPHRC). Since opening, this centre has conducted extensive research to improve leprosy treatment and helped us treat and support almost 4 million people! Help us continue this vital work - and if you donate between 24th September and 24th October your donation can be doubled! Double your donation now! Conducting life-changing research, treatment and community outreach One of the many people the centre has helped is Jabbar. Thanks to a BPHRC community awareness campaign, Jabbar recognised his symptoms and visited BPHRC for diagnosis and treatment. This is Jabbar today, 18 years after is diagnosis - thanks to BPHRC he has no disabilities and lives a life free from the disease. Read Jabbar's story You can help us continue this life-changing legacy In October 2018, Blue Peter celebrates its 60th birthday, and to mark this occasion and celebrate our TV appeal we are hoping to raise another £2.8 million! This will help fund the vital research at BPHRC centre and help us to continue to support people in India, Bangladesh and Mozambique. An entire month to double donations!
