It's Time to Celebrate Our Volunteers!
21 Jun 10

This week we are celebrating the invaluable contribution that volunteers make to our vital work with leprosy-affected individuals and their families.

Every year, Volunteering New Zealand holds Volunteer Awareness Week to celebrate the countless Kiwis who selflessly give their time to good causes. This year, Volunteer Awareness week runs from 20 - 26th June and the theme is 'volunteering across the generations,' recognising the difference that all members of a family can make in their communities.

What better time could there be for us to honour our own dedicated volunteers and the difference they make to families affected by leprosy

Leprosy affects over 5 million families around the world. For many, leprosy has been a part of life for several generations. The Leprosy Mission is deeply committed to eradicating the causes and consequences of leprosy so that these families can live a life free from poverty, stigma and disease. But we can't do it on our own!

For close to 100 years, we have been lucky enough to have the support of dedicated and loyal volunteers.

This commitment to the Leprosy Mission has been passed down the generations, from family to family, and has enabled us to give hope to countless leprosy-affected individuals and their families around the world.

Our volunteers help us out with our mailings, collect stamps for us, talk about our work in their churches and communities, support our events, take part in Running 4 Rights, fundraise for us and just generally go out of their way to give us a helping hand

We would like to sincerely thank all of those people that have so selflessly given their time to us over the years. Your contributions really do make a difference and without you we simply couldn't achieve as much as we do. We hope you will continue to support us for many years to come.
