The Leprosy Mission is a worldwide partnership of Christian organisations, active in over 50 countries for more than 130 years. It has a vision for a world without leprosy and a passion to eradicate the causes and consequences of leprosy.
As long as leprosy afflicts individuals and communities, The Leprosy Mission is committed to doing all that we can to break its power and impact. God has equipped us with the means and methods to reach our goal of healing, restoring and empowering the lives of people affected by leprosy.
The diagnosis of leprosy is often too late and the typical nerve damage has already set in. The person is shunned, disowned, and rejected from their community. With the right support, we can change this.
This means more than just a cure for the disease; it means addressing the underlying causes, working to prevent disability and restoring dignity and wholeness.
