Trusts and foundations

Your trust or foundation can make a life-changing difference to people affected by leprosy. Each year more than 200,000 new cases of the disease are diagnosed and ten million people worldwide live with its lasting effects. But together, we can work to change this.

As a partner, you'll bring so much more than just the cure to the people we serve. Together we can help them gain independence, earn a living and break down barriers of stigma and discrimination in their communities.

The transformational impact of your funding

Partnerships with trusts and foundations currently provide healthcare, education and livelihood support to people affected by leprosy in Africa and Asia. You could choose to support our work generally, or choose a particular country or project.

In Nepal, for example, trust partnerships have brought livelihood support to 1,300 people, helping them to increase their income and advocate for better living conditions for themselves.
