Help rebuild our Research Centre to defeat leprosy
Our earthquake-damaged Research Centre is at risk of being shut down in Nepal. The hard work to defeat leprosy could be lost forever.
Your powerful gift today will help rebuild the centre and reach the summit to defeat leprosy.
The current research laboratory was built in 1966.
It was badly damaged in the 2015 earthquakes but somehow managed to cling on to the mountainside. This along with a lack of modern facilities makes it difficult to recruit and keep skilled staff.
Tragically, it is likely to fail its next government inspection and could be closed down. Years of research to see an end to leprosy could be lost forever. The facilities are worn out and the walls are crumbling. It is heartbreaking.
But every single brick you put in place for these new laboratories will help build a world without leprosy for children like Shakti. You could provide cement and equipment to rebuild the Research Centre.
We cannot leave children like Shakti to face disability we can prevent.
The entire rebuild of the Research Centre will cost $3,900,000.
It is worth every dollar to rebuild precious lives like Shakti’s. Our Research Centre in Nepal could conquer leprosy forever.
Established in New Zealand 1912.
