New funding

In March 2016, LUV+ secured £60,000 for 8 new income-generating projects in E Zambia and S Tanzania- £48,000 from the Scottish government’s International Development program’s Small Grant scheme and £12,000 from the Souter Charitable Trust in Scotland.

Starting in the summer of 2016 and lasting for 2 years, the projects will provide vital income to some of the most neglected communities in sub-Saharan Africa, ranging from the rearing of chickens to building maize mills.

Our overall aim is to provide an income-generating project to every leprosy community in 4 of the poorest countries of southern Africa (Malawi, Zambia, Tanzania and Zimbabwe).
