We are one of New Zealand's oldest charities being in New Zealand for over 100 years. We have a dedicated staff based in Auckland and raise funds and awareness for people affected by leprosy around the world.
Gillian Whitley, Leprosy Mission - NZ (Executive Director), and Brent Morgan, The Leprosy Mission - International (Director)
We are working towards a world without leprosy. 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 Global Fellowship of 29 countries around the world.
We are part of the Global Fellowship as a Supporting Country, our role is to uphold our partners around the world financially, practically, and prayerfully, enabling them to deliver the care and support that is needed.
We have a programmes team that manages our projects in the leprosy-affected countries where we work; a marketing and communications team that fundraises and promotes our work to the New Zealand public; a supporter services team that 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.
