Our partners

Pavers

Pavers, the York-based comfort shoe retailer funded our first ever mobile foot care unit in India. It travels around the Indian state of Bihar providing custom-made shoes for people affected by leprosy and lymphatic filariasis (LF).

People affected by the two diseases can lose feeling in parts of their body, including their feet. When a person loses sensation, they can develop injuries without even realising it, which can lead to infection. Foot care is exceptionally important in the rehabilitation process and custom-made shoes enable those who have lost sensation in their feet to restore a sense of normality, independence and lower the risk of infection.

Pavers funding this van has been vital in allowing us to deliver some of our life-changing work.

Asian Wealth Magazine

"Asian Wealth Magazine is pleased to have teamed up with Lepra as our official charity partner for 2014-15. 

After considering several other charities, we decided to partner with Lepra specifically because one third of the world’'s poorest people live in India and Bangladesh. These two countries currently account for 60% of the world’'s leprosy burden and Lepra’'s focus is where the need is greatest”. 

We are rolling out various projects and initiatives with Lepra and hope our business readership will join us and participate in bringing about change and help us in the fight to beat leprosy for good”."   Kalpesh Patel, Founder and Publisher, Asian Wealth Magazine


Industry


Here is what strategic brand consultancy Industry, had to say about supporting Lepra.

"When we set up the company we said we would act as a responsible business, making sure we invested back in society. We do this in two ways. The first is giving work experience to young people with the aim of inspiring them about the world of work.

The second is through pro bono work. We invest about 10% of our time annually doing pro bono work for charities. It is our chance to make a difference. But it has many benefits for the business too. It broadens our portfolio and takes us into new areas of work. It helps us make new contacts. It builds our reputation. And it is motivating for our employees.

Working with Lepra was a brilliant experience. The leadership team at Lepra had a clear idea about what they wanted to achieve and were receptive to new ideas and creative thinking. That meant we were able to take a huge leap forward creatively and get to a solution we all really believed in."


-Sholto Lindsay-Smith, Founding Director, Industry

Haddenham Healthcare

"We first got to hear about Lepra's amazing work when I met two of the staff at the British Lymphology conference. Rajni's presentation at the conference brought home the huge problem which exists in India surrounding lymphatic filariasis. We wanted to do something to help and donating our specialist compression garments was just one way we could support Lepra's work. The feedback we received from Rajni reporting on the successful outcome for people using our garments was heart-warming."   Haddenham Healthcare logo
