About Leprosy Relief Canada:
Founded in 1961, Leprosy Relief Canada (LRC) is based in Montreal, Quebec and fights leprosy and tuberculosis in developing countries. Leprosy is a highly contagious disease that is treatable and all but eradicated in first-world countries. However, LRC estimates that 230,000 new cases of leprosy occur across the world annually and at least 3 million people suffer from disabilities that arose after diagnosis. Tuberculosis is an airborne, infectious disease that is curable. LRC reports that there are roughly 9 million new cases and more than 1.5 million deaths due to this disease every year. LRC raises funds so that children and adults in Africa, Central and South America and Asia can receive treatment for these two diseases.
In F2015, Leprosy Relief Canada disbursed $1.1m to fund 33 projects in 13 countries across Africa, Central and South America and Asia. This includes one new project in Guinea Bissau – the charity launched this project in F2015 after it discovered that leprosy transmission in the country is still very high. 35% of funding went to Asia, 28% went to the Americas and 23% went to Africa. The two largest aid recipients are India (F2015: $241k) and the Dominican Republic (F2015: $179k). Funds go toward activities such as training health workers to identify people with leprosy or tuberculosis, providing treatments and medical care for these ailments, and providing rehabilitation for people with residual disabilities. LRC also supports the IDEA Project, an advocacy group that helps leprosy survivors participate with equal dignity and respect in society. Funding for the IDEA project represented 3% of total funding in F2015.
Leprosy Relief Canada is a medium-sized charity with donations of $1.6m in F2015. Administrative costs are 7% of revenues and fundraising costs are 9% of donations. $0.16 of every donated dollar goes toward overhead costs, which falls within Ci’s reasonable range for overhead spending.
LRC holds funding reserves of $5.9m, of which $865k are held in endowments. Omitting endowed funds, LRC’s reserves can cover annual funding activities for 4.7 years.
