These children in the River Purus region of the Amazon are supported by the work of Dr Tony and her team. The Guild has supported her work for a number of years. Read her story in the 2018 Annual Review.
The St Francis Leprosy Guild gives yearly support to about 80 Leprosy centres around the world. All our help is given regardless of race or religion to those affected by leprosy.
We have been active since 1895.
The Guild provides:
- Ongoing support for Leprosy Centres throughout the world, mainly in Asia and Africa
- Assistance to families and dependents of those affected by leprosy
- Funds for specific projects that significantly enhance the life of the leprosy sufferers (for example: drilling for water, weather-proof housing, improvements in hygiene, food or clothing).
- The Guild relies on donations to continue its work. Will you help by making a donation or by joining the Guild (if you join our mailing list, you will receive our annual review). A little money goes a long way.
