World Leprosy Day

On the last Sunday of January, people all around the world celebrate World Leprosy Day.


 It’s a day we can set aside to raise awareness of people affected by leprosy.


The French humanitarian Raoul Follereau selected the date for World Leprosy Day. He wanted to pay homage to the life of Mahatma Gandhi and his death on 30th January 1948. Inspired by Jesus, Gandhi had a lifelong compassion for people affected by leprosy.


You can make a real difference by becoming a prayer partner, collecting some spare change, or just by sharing your knowledge of our mission with others. We are so grateful for everything you do.
