Who We Are

Staffing and Governance

The Leprosy Mission New Zealand is a small office of just 10 staff that is based in Auckland.

We have a programmes team who manage our projects in the leprosy-affected countries where we work; a marketing and communications team who fundraise and promote our work to the New Zealand public; a supporter services team who look after our greatly valued donors, prayer partners and volunteers; and a finance team who look after everything that is money related.

The management team sets the strategic direction for the organisation as a whole, and keeps us on track to meet our objectives.
