In the past 50 years Netherlands Leprosy Relief has been one of the major change-makers towards a world without leprosy. In 2018 we started transforming our organisation towards an international alliance of locally embedded NGOs to better serve our mission. This new way of working as an alliance is marked with a new name. Netherlands Leprosy Relief continues as NLR.
NLR successfully completed a one year project to reduce disabilities through early case detection of leprosy, konzo and disabilities by other diseases in Mocuba, Ile and Gile districts of Zambezia province in Mozambique. This project was funded by the Australian government through its Direct Aid Program. 442 people were identified.
