Join us to help overturn the stigma of leprosy

World Leprosy Sunday 2021

Your support is vital during COVID-19.

Host or attend a World Leprosy Day event between 31 January 2021 and 30 May 2021.

World Leprosy Day is observed globally each year on the last Sunday in January, with the aim of raising awareness and knowledge about leprosy, the fact that it can be cured and to change attitudes that stigmatise and marginalise people affected by the disease.

During the months following World Leprosy Day (31 January 2021), hold your own World Leprosy Day event at your church, organisation or small group.

As the world has been brought down by COVID-19, the needs of people with leprosy are in danger of being forgotten.

Let’s join together and teach communities that no one deserves to be rejected or stigmatised simply because they are suffering with leprosy.

People like young dad Nuhu, already battling disability caused leprosy, risk also having to battle the despair of being rejected by their community. Made to feel that they are broken, and somehow unworthy of being loved.

The Leprosy Mission is calling on you to dedicate an event during the months of February to March for World Leprosy Day. Through The Leprosy Mission you can show love and help heal someone with leprosy like Nuhu.

Together we can end leprosy discrimination from our world.
