The Lepers Aid Committee (LAC) is a self- sacrificing, voluntary and humanitarian group of young and altruistic Ghanaians with dedicated hearts at soliciting for funds in supporting the cured and less privileged lepers in the Ghanaian communities, basically inmates of the Weija, Ho, Cape Coast, Kumasi, and Nkanchina leprosaria. LAC has for the past 18 years engaged in several activities aimed at raising funds and bringing to the public the needs and aspiration of our neglected cured lepers.
The aims and objectives of LAC are to bring to the notice of the public the need to help one another especially the less privileged in society. Also to continue to fight for the rights and needs of these cured lepers and to bring back life to all cured lepers in Ghana. In addition, LAC is aimed reducing and finally eliminating the stigmatization and discrimination levied against cured lepers in society. LAC finally aims to achieve a Ghana free and friendly leprosy environment.
LAC caters for the wellbeing, food, clothing, medical, and domestic bills and even arranges for burial of some deseased lepers. We call on all to help. Remember, “What so ever you do to the least of my brothers, you do onto me” (Matthew Chap. 25)
