Get involved

Faith-based giving

Through your faith give support to Lepra!

As a secular charity we are open to, and receive assistance from, all faiths and cultures. By working together, we can make a real difference in the lives of people affected by leprosy.

There are many ways you can support us through your faith, as an individual or by encouraging your whole faith community to get involved!


Why not involve your whole congregation in fundraising to support people affected by leprosy?

A collection, craft fair, book sale or church concert can help raise life-changing funds. 

You may even like to consider us as your charity for a specific religious festival, or as your charity of the year. With this level of support, your community can make a huge difference to people affected by leprosy, assisting them to build better lives. 

One popular way to raise funds is by holding a Life-changing tea. Enjoy tea, cakes and socialising while raising funds for projects that help some of the most vulnerable people in the world.

Alternatively, hold a Life-changing chai, and include traditional Asian sweets and desserts, along with chai tea to create a unique event celebrating the culture of the people we support.

Enjoy a visit from Lepra

To hear first-hand how we change people’s lives through our vital work, invite one of our Community Fundraisers to visit your place of worship. They will gladly share real stories from people who have been cured of leprosy about what it has meant to them. 

We can also provide a range of materials to publicise and support your event. Encourage your whole community to get involved in the work of Lepra and recognise the lasting benefit their support can have on people’s lives. Not only can they be cured of leprosy, but they may be reunited with family, re-enter their communities or have the use of limbs or sight restored.

To request a visit from one of our Community Fundraisers, please contact your regional representative.

With your support we can reach more people, change more lives and put more smiles on faces!
