Welcome to Barbara Kwateng Lupus Trust

We hope you do find this website a tremendous help whether you are searching for help for yourself or for a loved one. Lupus can be a frightening disease and its course rather uncertain.

It is natural for anyone who had just learnt about the diagnosis to feel rather scared but there is more to having this disease than these feelings. Support and understanding are very important to the emotional and physical wellbeing of those suffering or living with Lupus

There is a huge amount of information on Lupus on the web, in libraries and through your doctors. Don’t be discouraged. Being well educated on Lupus is the best tool you can have to address life’s issues.

BKLT aims to provide and recommend the most proven, current and trusted information on new research, successful and experimental treatments, new and existing Lupus organizations, tools for leading a healthy lifestyle and more. This information is presented in a clear and simple way so you can easily locate what’s most important to you.

Currently many people do not know what Lupus is. Please pass on this information to your family and network of friends so that they are also aware of Lupus. So much help and assistance is required and periodically, we organise events including sponsorship and other fundraising activities. You are welcome to take part in these activities which will be featured in our events webpage.

Sunday, 18 March 2012 was the famous Mothers’ Day. Barbara Kwateng Lupus Trust (BKLT) took advantage of this and successfully organised the Mothers’ Pampering Day. The event which took place at the Unity Centre, London, started from 3:00pm and ended at 8:00pm and was attended by about 50 persons including Lupus sufferers, their families, supporters and health care professionals.  At the event, Lupus sufferers and their families shared their experiences with each other. The highlights of the afternoon’s events included an Indian head massage, beauticians, nutritionists and health care advice, all of whom set up stalls within the centre to pamper and advise our guests and principally, mothers.  Some of the photographs taken at the event are displayed on our events page.

We wish to take this opportunity to thank everyone who attended and supported the event.
