Share this article →

Vitiligo affects 1% – 2% of the world’s population and currently, there is no cure. Our mission is to beat vitiligo by eradicating the psychological, social and physical effects of the condition on people’s lives, and by finding effective treatments and a cure.

As a charity, we are completely funded by the donors, members and fundraisers who contribute to the work we do. We wouldn’t be where we are
today without the support and generosity of people like you.

Raise money through sponsored challenges & events

Are you looking for a fitness goal this year, or simply to raise awareness of vitiligo amongst your friends, family and work colleagues? Signing up to a local marathon, fun run or Tough Mudder is a great way to raise much needed funds for our Charity and so is hosting a quiz or afternoon tea event at home. Whatever takes your fancy download our Fundraising Guide for more information on how you can support us through sponsored events & challenges.
