Disease Poverty Prejudice

Lepra is an international charity that works at the intersection of disease, poverty and prejudice. 

Last year we changed the lives of more than 400,000 people. You can help us reach more.


We work on the frontline in India and Bangladesh to treat, educate, rehabilitate and give a voice to people living on the margins of society.

We know that treatment is just one aspect of what is needed to rebuild a life damaged by disease. This is why we focus on:

  • The person and not just the disease
  • Helping people to find ways to improve their lives
  • And contribute within their communities again
