Covid Help to People with Leprosy Africa

Why we need your help

 become a pal of a PAL

A PAL is a Person Affected by Leprosy.

LUV+ invites you to 'become a pal of a PAL' in 2021 and help some of the most vulnerable, disabled communities in Africa.

LUV+ is urgently raising money to provide COVID equipment like soap, masks and gloves to 32 leprosy communities in Tanzania, Zambia and Malawi. In addition to this, any extra funds will be used for emergency food supplies to help these communities in the difficult months ahead.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) has stated that rapid response teams are racing against the spread of COVID in Africa. While the virus was slow to reach the continent compared to other parts of the world, infection has grown exponentially in recent weeks and continues to spread. The importance of PPE cannot be stated enough, yet the short supply globally has been a cause for concern. 

Over 1,000 PALs will be assisted, along with their spouses, children and grandchildren, so you will directly help over 4,000 of the poorest and most marginalised people in Tanzania, Zambia and Malawi. All monies raised will be spent directly on providing these items, in partnership with the Tanzanian Leprosy Association, ZATULET and LUV+ Malawi, with whom LUV+ has worked for many years.

Thank you so much for becoming 'a pal of a PAL'. Please sign up for your 'pal of a PAL' certificate by sending an email to
