We promise that a gift in your Will, however large or small, will be spent wisely and will make a genuine difference to people affected by leprosy.
However you choose to look at it, arranging for a bequest in your Will is perhaps the greatest gift you can make - it is a powerful way to serve leprosy-affected families for generations to come. Your lasting gift will help us make our vision of a world without leprosy, stigma and discrimination a reality.
As you think seriously about taking this significant step, you may want to take time to reflect on what is important to you and your family.
Your thoughts may be with your own families and ensuring they are cared for in the future. A bequest to the Leprosy Mission is often considered as another child or grandchild, providing the same commitment for the future care and protection of people affected by leprosy.
Or perhaps the Leprosy Mission is your family. You have been with us throughout the years, followed the progress of individuals and communities affected by leprosy, and your commitment to giving hope to future generations has no limits. Your lasting gift to the Mission ensures that your lifetime of committed support will continue to live on, giving us the opportunity to make our vision a reality.
For all, we are one family in Christ, and your lasting gift to the Leprosy Mission enables you to continue your support for the work you truly believe in.
