World Leprosy Day 2022 is on Sunday 30th January and members of the Order of St Lazarus will be marking the day in a variety of ways – including offering prayer for those affected by leprosy and by the prejudice and discrimination that often results from it.
The Trust's World Leprosy Day fund-raising appeal for this year is in aid of the Nepal Leprosy Trust, raising money to provide a much-needed portable X-ray machine for the Lalgadh Leprosy Hospital. You can read all about the project here and in the NLT's latest newsletter.
Chevalier John Reid on behalf of the St Lazarus Charitable Trust presented Mrs Susan Wells, a trustee of the Nepal Leprosy Trust with the funds collected for our World Leprosy Day Appeal 2022. The total sum raised (£12,893.75) will allow The Nepal Leprosy Trust to purchase a mobile X-ray unit for Lalgadh Leprosy Hospital in Nepal. Present at the presentation were H E Chevalier Gareth Vaughan, Chevalier David Knox and Chevalier Mario Rizzardi.
