Our work is entirely funded by private donations – we receive no money from government or pharmaceutical industry. Your money help us continue funding research into vitiligo and supporting people affected by the condition.
Here are some of our accomplishments to date:
- Launched and funded the World Vitiligo Day campaign to increase awareness of vitiligo.
- Created a networked Vitiligo BioBank and a bio-IT system Vitiligo CloudBank to support research.
- Conducted Master Classes on Vitiligo in eleven countries, and educated over three thousand doctors.
- Published over 50 articles, reviews and other papers, Q&A and books in seven languages.
- Supported vitiligo groups in the United States and ten other countries.
But we cannot do this without your help! Please give as generously as you can. We will use every single cent of your donation in the fight against vitiligo – either through research into the disease, doctor’s education or supporting those with the condition.
