Please join us on our journey towards a world free from leprosy, stigma and discrimination.
Leprosy is a significant but manageable problem, and with enough help, it can be overcome within a generation.
We have already made so much progress and by joining with us now, you can be part of something amazing - the generation that is responsible for eradicating the causes and consequences of leprosy once and for all.
Leprosy doesn't exist in New Zealand anymore but the Leprosy Mission New Zealand plays a vital role in the overall work of The Leprosy Mission.
Our role in the Global Fellowship as a Supporting Country is to uphold our partners around the world financially, practically, and prayerfully, enabling them to deliver the care and support that is needed.
To make this possible, we need people like you, as well as churches and community groups, from across the country to stand in the G.A.P. with us by Giving, Acting, or Praying.
Not long after Nehemiah and the other Jewish exiles returned to Jerusalem and started to rebuild the walls, they came under threat from those who lived nearby.
In order to protect and uphold each other and the city, they stood at the gaps in the walls.
"Therefore I stationed some of the people behind the lowest points of the wall at the exposed places, posting them by families, with their swords, spears, and bows." Nehemiah 4:13
The Leprosy Mission works to protect and uphold people affected by leprosy, often in places and situations where they are vulnerable with limited support or protection.
With this picture in mind, will you join us, standing in the G.A.P., until leprosy is completely eradicated from this world?
