Who We Are

The Leprosy Mission New Zealand is a small office based in Auckland. We also have a supportive Board that provides us with expert advice on a wide range of issues.

Staffing Leprosy Mission New Zealand

Gillian Whitley, LMNZ Executive Director, and Brent Morgan, The Leprosy Mission International Director 

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. 

Staffing and Governance

The Leprosy Mission New Zealand is a small office 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.
