Lepra News Summer 2021

Special Issue: COVID-19 Emergency Vaccination Appeal 

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

In this issue we look at the vaccine inequity issues facing India and Bangladesh, and Lepra's work delivering vital COVID-19 vaccinations to people affected by leprosy and lymphatic filariasis (LF), who are already at the bottom of the global health system. They are subject to social isolation, discrimination and rejection at every turn, and COVID-19 has only exacerbated this around the world. 

Just £19 allows us to provide someone with leprosy or LF both doses of the vaccine in a safe and dignified location.

Your donation today will make a difference.

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.

Your donation today will make a difference.

Gift Aid Appeal

Gift Aid Appeal for Giving Tuesday

Give the gift of Gift Aid this Giving Tuesday, and turn 2021 into a year of hope.

Last year, Lepra’s Gift Aid claim was in excess of £104,000, which highlights just how vital maximising this scheme is.

For every £1 you donate, Lepra is able to claim an extra 25p back from HMRC, so long as you pay the basic rate of tax.  Better still is the fact that we can claim this retrospectively on all the wonderful donations you have made over the last 4 years!

Please complete and return our online Gift Aid declaration form as soon as possible. Our dedicated team will do the rest.

Your Present, Their Future

In the 95 years since our founding we have helped millions of people affected by Neglected Tropical Diseases such as leprosy.

There is now a cure for leprosy, however, there is more work to be done as prejudice, discrimination and lack of healthcare and resources mean not everyone can receive this in time to prevent disabilities.
