Charitable No. 10311 5812 RR0001 Leprosy is a disease linked to poverty.
Untreated, the disease leads to wounds and deformities. Around 230,000 new cases are reported worldwide each year. At least 3 million people are living with some permanent disability due to leprosy. Fortunately, leprosy can be completely cured with a few months of effective drug treatment. If treatment starts at an early stage, most patients never suffer the damaging complications of leprosy.
Founded in 1961, Leprosy Relief is a leading international humanitarian organization fighting leprosy. Leprosy Relief is a member of ILEP the international Federation of AntiLeprosy Associations. Leprosy Relief Canada works to restore health, hope and dignity to people affected by leprosy.
