A Gift in Your Will

A gift in your will is a legacy that lasts a lifetime.

Legacy giving makes the world a better place, for generations to come. Our vision is a world free from prejudice and discrimination due to leprosy, and a gift in your will can bring us one step closer to this.

We understand that your loved ones will always come first, but after you have taken care of them, would you consider remembering those most vulnerable, most marginalised, often forgotten, by leaving a gift in your will? Every third person we help is because of a gift left in a will.

Your gift will make a difference

A gift in your will of any size makes a difference to people in the most difficult of circumstances. Even just 1% of your will can change lives.

How your legacy could change lives

  • £140 will train 30 government health care workers about leprosy enabling them to recognise the symptoms
  • £266 funds a medical officer for one month to diagnose and treat leprosy
  • £510 will fund a community outreach worker for one year, helping to spot the symptoms of leprosy 
  • £1,040 funds a nurse for a year to care for patients after reconstructive surgery
  • £3,211 pays for a surgeon to undertake 450 reconstructive surgeries to restore mobility in a year
  • £10,100 enables a mobile footwear van to travel a state to provide shoes for people affected by leprosy, alleviating pain and restoring a sense of normality 
  • £13,200 will pay for a new health education van, allowing us to raise awareness about leprosy to whole communities
