ION sponsors Lepra for World Leprosy Day

26 January 2021

World Leprosy Day takes place on Sunday 31 January 2021, and this year Lepra is raising awareness of leprosy through a series of radio interviews with Victoria Hislop, Lepra ambassador and author of the best-selling novel, The Island.

National radio coverage such as this is crucial for raising awareness about leprosy, so we would like to say an enormous thank you to ION for providing vital sponsorship for this coverage. Thanks to ION, our voice for leprosy can be heard by even more people on this incredibly important day in the world calendar.

‘We are very proud to support Lepra for World Leprosy Day 2021. As Lepra’s accounting software supplier, ION and Lepra have worked together for a long time, and we have learnt that leprosy is not a disease of the past, it is still affecting millions of lives across the world. World Leprosy Day is the biggest opportunity of the year to put a spotlight on leprosy globally, and we are proud to be a part of that.’ – Rob Mathieson, Managing Director

Victoria Hislop’s World Leprosy Day radio interviews will be taking place on Friday January 29th. Keep an eye on our social media to keep up to date on which radio stations will be broadcasting the interviews.
