Mission Statement

American Leprosy Missions exists to serve as a channel of Christ’s love to persons affected by leprosy and related diseases, helping them to be healed in body and spirit and restored to lives of dignity and hope.

Description

More than one billion men, women and children are affected by neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), including leprosy and Buruli ulcer. These diseases affect the poorest and most marginalized people and can lead to:
➤ Profound pain and suffering

➤ Increased poverty
➤ Stigma and isolation

American Leprosy Missions serves people affected by six NTDs that can cause disabilities and ongoing complications:
➤ Leprosy
➤ Buruli ulcer

➤ Yaws
➤ Leishmaniasis
➤ Trachoma
