Out of Stock
We understand it's frustrating to see that the item you want to buy is out of stock - so why do we continue to show these products when they're not currently available for you to buy?
It's because we believe you'll want to know that we normally stock that item, in case you want to buy it at a later date once more stock's been delivered. It means you'll still have the product details to hand, and in some instances we're able to offer you the option of emailing you once the item does come back into stock.
Our Search engine works by checking your search term against all the product titles, product information and product codes currently on the website. It then shows products on the page that may match your query. The Search engine will also try to match your query with similar relevant terms; a search for Christmas for example, will return different types of item that include Christmas in their product title or product copy.
You'll get the most precise results by searching for a 5 digit stock code, which you can find when you view a product in The Leprosy Mission catalogue.
More refinement options are also available. You can also sort your results by price, name or popularity. If you can't find what you're looking for, try browsing using the naviagation bar at the top of the page.
We offer various ways for you to pay for your order, including Visa and MasterCard; Delta; Maestro; Solo and tlmtrading.com money-off coupons as well as PayPal. You can use a combination of gift vouchers and any payment card we accept to pay for your order.
