How To Help
We are building a community of people across the globe who share our determination to beat vitiligo. There are two ways you can become a part of this community right now:
- Donate to us today and make your mark in the fight against vitiligo. Give whatever you can afford – every single cent helps us defeat this condition. Find out more about our work and the projects we fund across the globe, or find out more about our organisation.
- Sign up for our Vitiligo Connections newsletter. As part of our community we want you to know all about our activities and this newsletter keeps you informed about the many projects and initiatives we are involved in.
If you have questions about our work, or suggestions about things we can do better or differently then please contact us – we’d love to hear from you.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
