Events – 2019

Find out what is going on, join in and support NLT though these events.

27th January 2019 is “World Leprosy Day”.

World Leprosy Day is observed internationally every year on the last Sunday of January, to increase public awareness of leprosy. This day was chosen in commemoration of the death of Mahatma Gandhi, the leader of India who had great sympathy for the poor and understood the importance of helping people with leprosy, who are mostly amongst the very poorest. Please consider holding a coffee morning for NLT to raise some funds for our work in Nepal. We can provide leaflets, powerpoint presentations, pictures, handicrafts for sale, etc, to support an event that you put on. Contact us by email: or telephone: 0208 940 1200

27th May 2019 is the Vitality London 10000 run

Nepal Leprosy Trust had 5 runners in last year’s Vitality run, which is held in London and starts and finishes near Buckingham Palace. It is well organised and attracts nearly 25,000 runners including some famous ones like Sir Mo Farah. we hope to have 10 runners in this year’s run and would be thrilled if you would like to join our team.
