Lepra is an international charity that works on the frontline in India and Bangladesh to treat, educate, rehabilitate and give a voice to people living on the margins of society.
Lepra focuses on people who find themselves trapped at the intersection of disease, poverty and prejudice. Lepra helps improve their health, lives and livelihoods by opening up avenues of knowledge and facilities to offer diagnosis and care before they are pushed further into poverty.
The children were visited by a lady from Lepra UK who talked to them about children like them who are suffering from leprosy, a disease which thankfully we cannot contract in the UK. She talked about how we can help to make the lives of these children better.
The children were very moved by her stories and were eager to help.
The children enjoyed a Lepra workout in school and collected lots of money for the charity too!
