Give Stamps or Coins

It doesn’t take long to set aside old or used stamps. But by doing so, you can actively cure people affected by leprosy.

Volunteers of the Leprosy Mission Australia sort and sell donated stamps at stamp fairs. The money they raise is then used to support your projects in Timor Leste, Nepal, Nigeria, India, Papua New Guinea and Thailand. 100 donated stamps can raise enough money to cure someone affected by leprosy. So every single stamp counts. An exotic stamp to the right collector could even cure hundreds of people affected by leprosy!

To help people affected by leprosy, please send your stamps to:

The Leprosy Mission Australia

37-39 Ellingworth Parade

Box Hill, VIC, 3128

Stamps are best left on the original envelope or postcard.

Full collections are especially of value. If you have an original collection you’d like to donate, please leave it complete where possible.

Call us to discuss your collection on 1800 LEPROSY (1800 537 767) or send us an email below – we’d love to speak with you!
