The Leprosy Mission New Zealand is a Christian development organisation that works with leprosy-affected families and their communities. Established in 1912, we are one of the oldest and most trusted charities in New Zealand. We are part of the Leprosy Mission International, a leading Christian development organisation that has a presence in over 28 leprosy-affected countries around the world. Thousands of New Zealanders have been supporting our vital work for close to 100 years, and we believe the long-standing connection we have with them is unique. It's a connection that is about so much more than giving money - it's about New Zealand families helping families living in the developing world who are disadvantaged by leprosy. This commitment to the Leprosy Mission has been passed down the generations, allowing us to give hope to countless leprosy-affected families around the world. With enough help, leprosy can be overcome.
