LepVax – Stopping the Transmission of Leprosy

This is an exciting time in the fight against leprosy! We are on the cusp of implementing, LepVax, a vaccine for leprosy!

Our goal is to raise $250,000 in the next 60 days to make this final push possible. And I want you to know that a very generous Canadian supporter will multiply your gift. When you give $1,000 you will make it possible for us to invest $4,000 into research.

We’re so close to this incredible development in the fight against leprosy. But we need your help.

Remember, every gift will be MATCHED to multiply your support. Please give as you are able:
