Your impact in Mozambique

Cycling changemakers

Thousands of people affected by leprosy in Mozambique are benefiting from an ambitious project. This was made possible by your generous donations to our Unconditional appeal in 2021 and UK Aid Match funding from the government.

New 'Hubs of Hope' have been built in the villages of Cabo Delgado province, thanks to your gifts. They are places where everyone is welcome and can join together in the fight against leprosy. Powered by solar panels, they enable a low-cost, credit card-sized computer to provide an internet connection. The hubs have become central to daily life in the communities they serve, providing facilities, training, and a safe place for groups to meet to learn or socialise.

The activities taking place in a Hub of Hope each week include self-care groups. People affected by leprosy get together to check each other’s hands and feet for injuries. A health worker is available to dress any ulcers. This work is so important as it stops people from developing permanent disabilities. Because of you, 800 people affected by leprosy and other neglected tropical diseases are now part of a self-help group.
