Our wonderful £1 from you, we get two appeal has come to an end with an amazing £73,000 in matched  donations!

Over the past 6 weeks, your donations have been doubled meaning for every pound you donated, we received two! Our appeal this year focused on our Mental Motivators Pilot project in Bangladesh.                                                

Mental Motivators are an important part of the community, allowing people affected by leprosy and lymphatic filariasis (LF) a chance to help others by directing them towards medical and psychological support.

Taslima, one of our wonderful Mental Motivators, was diagnosed with leprosy as a young adult and has worked tirelessly since then to raise awareness about the disease and teach other young girls that there is still a future, even after you have been diagnosed.                                                                                                                 

Why do we need your support?

The money raised through this appeal will go directly to this project, so that many more people can get help and we can continue to expand this vital service. 

Over half of people diagnosed with leprosy or LF suffer from mental health issues like depression, anxiety and feelings of isolation and exclusion. 

While this appeal may have come to and end for this year, we continue our efforts to change lives and support those affected by leprosy and LF. 

Please continue to support our work by donating and getting involved with our events and fundraising activities, so that more people can get the help they need! 

From all at Lepra, we would like to say a massive thank you to YOU for all your generous donations and the many ways you have helped us over the past 6 weeks. 

We would also like to thank our Ambassador Stuart Miles for all his support during this appeal. Please check out the link below to see his video, which has been nominated in the Charity Film Awards, where he talks to people about the devastating impact leprosy and LF can have on people.
