The Leprosy Mission was founded in India in 1869, with the Canadian affiliate formed in Guelph, Ontario, in 1892. In 1982, the development of multi-drug therapy allowed the Leprosy Mission to expand its work from the alleviation of suffering towards an actual cure. In 2014, the Leprosy Mission rebranded to effect:hope. effect:hope’s mission is “to cure and end leprosy together: overcoming disease, disability and stigma.” Its vision is “leprosy eliminated; hope restored.” effect:hope reports that in F2014, there were 215,656 new cases of leprosy worldwide.
effect:hope aims to eliminate leprosy through four domains of change: service delivery, advocacy, strengthening health systems and research. In collaboration with international partners, effect:hope works in 12 countries including Bangladesh, Liberia, Myanmar, Nepal and Nigeria. The charity works towards its mission by helping its partners set up hospitals, rural health centres, rehabilitation and vocational training centres, and community services.
In F2015, effect:hope reported that it helped 819 children attend school, and 6,831 people receive medical attention and care. Further, 219,385 were screened for Leprosy. effect:hope reported that 2,719 people noticed improved participation in family, community and work.
In F2015, Liberia was effect:hope’s focus country as it was still recovering from the Ebola outbreak. During the year, effect:hope supported the Liberian Ministry of Health in assessing the fragile health care system. It found that many people affected by leprosy did not have access to transportation systems, basic health care, and carried societal stigma. effect:hope is working with the Ministry of Health to integrate disease management for leprosy with the national health care plan.
effect:hope is a large charity, with donations of $7.1m in F2015. Its administrative costs are 9% of revenues, and its fundraising costs are 21% of donations. For every $1 donated to effect:hope, 70 cents is put towards its programs, falling within Ci's reasonable range. Its funding reserves of $369k include $13k in donor-endowed funds. This results in a program cost coverage ratio (excluding donor-endowed funds) of 6%, indicating a need for donations.
This charity report is an update that is being reviewed by effect:hope. Changes and edits may be forthcoming.
