Leprosy Outreach -
About us

Our Drive

The leprosy charity started in 2012 following a strong conviction to help people affected by leprosy in Nigeria. Seeing people affected by leprosy on the highway begging for alms was very emotionally difficult but moved us to act with compassion.

Leprosy Outreach has been a small dynamic and forward thinking organisation in trying to be the front line in dealing with issues surrounding cases of Leprosy and in meeting the needs of the people severely affected by its consequences.

Our mission

Our mission is to meet the physical, mental and social needs of individuals and communities disadvantaged by leprosy; working with them to uphold human dignity and eradicate leprosy. We will reduce the effect of Leprosy through providing services, campaigning and education.

Our Vision

We want a world where there are fewer cases of leprosy and all those affected by leprosy get the help they need.
