Leprosy defeated, lives transformed.
Following Jesus Christ, The Leprosy Mission seeks to bring about transformation; breaking the chains of leprosy, empowering people to attain healing, dignity, and life in all its fullness.
Because we follow Jesus Christ, we value compassion, justice, integrity, inclusion, and humility.
The design represents Jesus and the man with leprosy who knelt at Jesus’ feet asking to be healed – and Jesus healed him (see The Bible – Mark 1:40-42). It deeply expresses the heart’s desire of The Leprosy Mission’s Founder, Wellesley Bailey, who wrote
“I felt if ever there was a Christ-like work in this world it was to go among these poor sufferers and bring to them the consolation of the Gospel”.
