Leave a lasting legacy 

Play a crucial part in beating leprosy by leaving a gift to us in your will. 

We believe that no child, woman or man should have to live undiagnosed with a curable disease due to misdiagnosis and fear of social exclusion.

Your Will is a testament to you and your beliefs. If you share ours, you can help us to continue to diagnose, treat and rehabilitate people with leprosy, with the vision to one day beating the disease altogether.

Why Lepra?

For over 95 years, we have played an integral part in diagnosing and treating, raising awareness, reducing poverty and breaking the prejudice associated with leprosy.

600 people are diagnosed with leprosy each day - more than 50 of these will be children

We work in some of the world’s poorest communities to help people access treatment, enabling them to improve their health and mobility, fight poverty and discrimination and live normal, healthy lives.
