Mission Statement

To serve as a channel of Christ's love to persons affected by leprosy and Buruli ulcer, helping them to be healed in body and spirit and restored to lives of dignity and hope.

Description

ALM is the oldest and largest non-profit in the US dedicated to restoring the lives of people affected by leprosy. We work in 14 countries but our offices are located in downtown Greenville. While most people believe that leprosy existed only in the days of the Bible, millions of people are still affected by it. There are about 250,000 new cases worldwide each year and if they are treated early enough, they can avoid the debilitating effects of the disease.
