Who we are
- Basler Leprahilfe is a partnership between the churches
and the business community of the Basel area.
- The association was founded on 22 April 1991,
in the aftermath of the European Ecumenical Assembly held in Basel in May 1989.
- The association is responsible for the collection and appropriate use
of funds for combatting leprosy and other diseases and their effects.
- The board of directors all work in an honorary capacity.
The administrative expenses amount to less than 5 % of the earnings.
