Welcome to Rufiji Leprosy Trust

The Rufiji Leprosy Trust exists to fundraise and support the Kindwitwi Leprosy Care Centre in the Rufiji area of Tanzania. The care centre assists in:

~ Finding and treating leprosy sufferers in the Rufiji area
~ Supporting ex-leprosy patients and their families throughout the Rufiji area
~ Promoting self-sufficiency of ex-leprosy sufferers and their families

Leprosy is fast becoming the Cinderella of serious diseases – many think leprosy is no longer a problem, although the Trust knows this is not universally true. Please read on to find out more about our work, to make a donation or to catch up on the latest news.
