Leprosy Mission Southern Africa

Leprosy is a robber.

It robs people of their ability to feel pain. Painless injuries rob people of their hands, feet and sight.  Leprosy also robs them of their friends, family and income.

With your help, the Leprosy Mission will put this robber where he belongs – behind bars.

The Leprosy Mission is a Christian charity, working to fulfil the command of Jesus to

“Heal the sick, cleanse those with leprosy, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give.”

Matthew 10:8

The Leprosy Mission provides leprosy patients with free treatment and shows people whose nerves have been damaged by leprosy how to prevent injuries and disabilities.

The Leprosy Mission also trains health workers to recognise the early signs of leprosy.  Early treatment helps to prevent nerve damage and disabilities.

We welcome invitations to speak at Churches and other gatherings about what you can do to help people suffering from this most dreadful of afflictions.
