The Nepal Leprosy Trust 

This year we will be supporting Lalgadh Hospital in Nepal, this is a charity we have had links with for many years and we look to continue this as our overseas mission for 2021. 

"Hansen’s disease, commonly called “leprosy”, is a chronic disease caused by a bacterium, Mycobacterium leprae. It is not highly infectious, but can cause severe and permanent damage to the skin, nerves, limbs and eyes if untreated. Treatment is simple, effective and free in all countries so that leprosy can now be cured easily and cheaply through multi-drug therapy (MDT). Eradication of the disease worldwide is a realistic goal. However, those affected by the disease need not only a medical cure, but help in rebuilding their shattered lives."
