Our Mission / Objective

The Leprosy Mission was founded in 1874 by Wellesley and Alice Bailey, and their friends the Pim sisters to provide holistic support to people affected by leprosy. After more than 140 years, The Leprosy Mission is still committed to this central work. It is the largest and oldest leprosy-focussed organisation in the world.

Our Vision

Leprosy defeated, lives transformed.

Our Mission

Following Jesus Christ, The Leprosy Mission strives to break the chains of leprosy, empowering people to attain healing, dignity, and life in all its fullness.

Our Values

Because we follow Jesus Christ, we value compassion, justice, integrity, inclusion and humility.

Our Logo

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”.

 

Projects in Progress

INDIA: KOTHARA AND SALUR HOSPITALS

These hospitals provide much needed medical care to people affected by leprosy including Multi-Drug Therapy, reconstructive surgery, rehabilitation and ulcer care. They also provide general medical services to local communities. Your support has enabled these hospitals to treat 51,000 people for leprosy and general health conditions over the last year.

In the last year, the hospitals saw:

• 134 people received reconstructive surgery for leprosy impairments across both hospitals.

• 232 new cases of leprosy diagnosed.

• 325 appropriate footwear, orthotic aids and prostheses provided to people affected by leprosy to improve mobility and function across both hospitals.

• 4,143 people affected by leprosy received physiotherapy services in the Philadelphia Leprosy Hospital Salur.

INDIA: VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTRE PROJECT

Vocational training centres teach a wide variety of technical skills for people affected by leprosy and general disability. This means that they can obtain employment and independently support their families.

This training includes cutting and sewing, diesel mechanics, dressmaking, electrician, motor vehicle mechanics, animal husbandry.

The Leprosy Mission Australia is supporting the Vadathorasalur Vocational Centre in India which is situated on the grounds of The Leprosy Mission’s Vadathorasalur Hospital.

Over the next five years, the project aims to ensure healing, dignity and inclusion for a minimum of 670 young people affected by leprosy and disability and 200 underprivileged girls and women.

INDIA: INCLUSIVE EMPOWERMENT PROJECT

The new Inclusive Empowerment project merges the advocacy and disability management activities of the PARTI (Partnerships, Advocacy, Research and Training towards Inclusion) project with the livelihoods work of SOAR project SOAR (a sister project supported by The Leprosy Mission England & Wales) and the development of civil society organisations through the CREATE project. The desired result is a comprehensive model of inclusive development and rehabilitation for people affected by leprosy and disability.

The PARTI project ended in December 2018, having focused on assisting people with disabilities to claim their rights with regards to employment, education, healthcare, government entitlements, and community participation. Engaging with people with disabilities at a village level, the PARTI project raised up ‘leprosy and disability champions’ to advocate for their rights and be an example to others.

PARTI’s achievements last year include:
• 650 households screened for leprosy
• 16 new cases of leprosy diagnosed, including seven children
• 472 people received disability management services and training in self-care
• 3,050 people reached with activities advocating for disability rights

Social Return on Investment
Last year, 2,219 students received training on safe and inclusive Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) practices, at a cost of $0.38 per student.

NEPAL: EDUCATION PROGRAM

The SER (Socio-Economic Rehabilitation) Education Program aims to support 100 students (from primary school through to college) with scholarships to contribute to school fees, uniforms and supplies. Students are either directly affected or the dependents of people affected by leprosy or disability. The Education Program team also provides counselling sessions to parents in students in order to encourage girls to stay in school and receive an education.

The SER Education Program works towards ensuring an education for children who are either affected by leprosy, have a physical disability or are dependent on leprosy affected parents.

This program provides scholarship support to children living in poverty as a result of disease or disability to secure a better life and hopeful future. The support is equivalent to approximately AU$120 per student which contributes to school fees, uniforms and supplies. Without this scholarship support, many of these students would have stopped advancing their education level.

As a result of this project, children have had the opportunity to complete their studies from primary school through to college, resulting in recipients also graduating with university degrees and securing jobs.

Children are provided with support based on recommendations provided by Self-Help Groups (SHGs), Cooperative members, local government and schools where students are studying.

The Education Program team also helps socialise teachers and schools to disability accessibility and creating a stigma-free learning environment.

NEPAL: ANANDABAN HOSPITAL SELF-CARE UNIT

The Self Care Unit (SCU) at Anandaban Hospital provides Self Care education to people affected by leprosy.  It is essential for people with leprosy-related sensory loss and muscle weakness to learn how to prevent injury and care for their wounds. The Self Care Unit provides practical training to do this to prevent the development of further injury or disability. The unit also distributes assistive devices like footwear.

The SCU provides self-care residential training to equip individuals to practically and psychologically participate in family and community life again. A typical Nepali house was built on the Anandaban Hospital compound specifically to train people in self-care practices.

NEPAL: Integrated Mobilisation of People for Active Community Transformation (IMPACT) Project

The Participatory Action for Community Empowerment and Development (PACED CHAMP) project concluded in 2019. The next phase of the project, IMPACT, will continue action toward leprosy and preventable disease control using the SHG/Cooperative model in three new districts: Rupandehi, Kapilbastu and Parasi.

Last year, the PACED CHAMP project achieved many successes, including:
• 160 people received Prevention of Disability training
• 608 people reached with training on family violence
• 1832 members of Self-Help Groups

Australian Aid Supported by the Australian Government
The PACED CHAMP project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy and disability in Nepal.

NEPAL: RECLAIM EASTERN DEVELOPMENT REGION PROJECT

Implemented by the Nepal Leprosy Fellowship, RECLAIM 2 works to develop communities on the Terai plains of Nepal through empowering people affected by leprosy and disability by forming Self-Help Groups and Cooperatives.

RECLAIM II uses a SHG/Cooperative model to help develop communities. The project team and the SHGs help find new cases of leprosy, and the project tries to remove barriers to full social inclusion for people with disabilities, such as through MCR footwear or self-care training.

RECLAIM = Releasing the Energy and Capabilities of Leprosy Affected Individuals and other Marginalised people.

Australian Aid Supported by the Australian Government
The RECLAIM EDR Project II is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy and disability in Nepal.

NIGERIA: INTEGRATED NEGLECTED TROPICAL DISEASE AND DISABILITY PROJECT

This project aimed to increase access to quality leprosy, lymphatic filariasis (LF) and disability services within an integrated health system for communities in Zamfara. The project worked closely with the Government’s Department of Health to improve health services, train health workers, and increase access to health clinics at a local level. The project also worked with communities to help ensure people with disabilities were included in society.

The Integrated NTD and Disability Project commenced in July 2014.  Now in its third year, some recent achievements over the past 12 months include:

• 500 people participated in prevention of disability training

• 296 new leprosy cases detected

• Campaigns conducted across schools and communities to educate people on water, hygiene and sanitation practices reached over 4,000 people

• 173 people were assessed and provided with assistive devices (such as walking frames and wheelchairs).

Australian Aid Supported by the Australian Government
The Integrated NTD and Disability Project is supported by the Australian Government through theAustralian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy, other neglected tropical diseases and disability in Nigeria.

PAPUA NEW GUINEA: LEPROSY CONTROL PROJECT IN WESTERN PROVINCE PROJECT

The Leprosy Mission Australia is partnering with The Leprosy Mission PNG on a new project, ‘Leprosy Support in Western Province’. This project operates in the Western Province, where villages and health clinics are often remotely located and difficult to access. Often it is very difficult to both reach leprosy patients – people like Lily (read her story below). Ensuring local health workers have leprosy knowledge is also a challenge.

This project seeks to train health workers at the clinical level in leprosy diagnosis, treatment and management, to ensure every clinic across Western Province has two health workers with leprosy expertise. The project will also monitor MDT supply, and train community members to spread awareness about leprosy, and other health issues.

THAILAND: THE MCKEAN HOSPITAL BASED LEPROSY CONTROL PROJECT

This specific project, begun in July 2017, continues to provide healthcare and disability services to marginalised and disadvantaged people in Thailand.  This strengthens health services in the northern and western border-regions. Your support also provides assistive devices and vocational training to people affected by leprosy and/or disability.

YOUR IMPACT / SOCIAL RETURN ON INVESTMENT:

Thanks to you, refugees affected by leprosy and other disabilities were assisted to travel to Chiang Mai, where they were able to receive appropriate treatment. In addition, McKean arranged for Thai language classes, counselling services, housing, and community groups for refugees to share their experiences and make friends. Not only have the patients displayed incredible physical improvement, but they have also been able to settle in and establish a new life for themselves in Thailand thanks to McKean’s help.

THAILAND: THE MCKEAN ELDERLY LEPROSY RESIDENTIAL CARE PROJECT

This phase of the project began in July 2017 and provides elderly disabled leprosy patients with quality, holistic residential care support in northern and western border regions of Thailand.

Due to past experiences of stigma, social rejection and dislocation from families, elderly people affected by leprosy can lack a social support network.  Because of ongoing, and often worsening disability, elderly people affected by leprosy experience increasing immobility, dependency and lessening quality of life.

Social exclusion, limited education and limited mobility,  can cause a lack awareness for these people their rights to access government benefits (e.g. disability pensions).

This project aims to provide housing and strengthen leprosy and disability services for these elderly people in northern and western border regions of Thailand.

THAILAND: THE MCKEAN SENIOR CENTRE LEPROSY CONTROL AND REHABILIATION PROJECT

The McKean Senior Centre (formerly known as McKean Rehabilitation Centre) provides many services to the community in Chiang Mai, among which is a three-pronged leprosy program.

Firstly, the hospital-based leprosy control program treats people at McKean’s on-site hospital, including migrants and refugees who struggle to access healthcare in the public system.

The community-based leprosy control program works with government health workers to ensure people living in the community are diagnosed and treated for leprosy effectively and without discrimination.

Finally, McKean continues to provide accommodation and care to 28 elderly leprosy-affected people. The residents frequently host visits from primary Thai students and medical students from around the world to talk about the legacy of leprosy stigma and discrimination in Thailand.

Social Return on Investment

Through McKean’s hospital, 48 people affected by leprosy or disability were provided with assistive footwear, at a cost of $22 per person.

TIMOR LESTE: IMPROVED LEPROSY SERVICES PROJECT

The new project, Improved Leprosy Services in Timor Leste (ILS), will keep up the work of the Better Health project (which concluded in 2019) in three districts, and expand to a fourth – Manatuto – which has seen a worrying trend of emerging leprosy cases recently.

The ILS project will also develop an exit-strategy for The Leprosy Mission Timor Leste’s engagement with the Ministry of Health, in order to promote sustainability.

The Better Health project worked to eliminate leprosy in the high-endemic districts of Dili, Baucau and Oecusse. Working as the official partner of the Timorese Ministry of Health in the National Leprosy Control Program, Better Health strengthened early detection of leprosy to help minimise transmission and disability in affected communities.

Last year, the project achieved the following:
• Leprosy information material distributed to 41,937 people
• 25,817 people screened for leprosy
• 102 new cases of leprosy diagnosed
• 191 health workers trained in leprosy detection and management

Social Return on Investment
The Better Health project screened household members and neighbours of people newly diagnosed with leprosy, in order to catch further cases quickly. At a cost of $3.25 each, 445 people were screened.

Australian Aid Supported by the Australian Government
The Better Health Project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy and disability in Timor Leste.

TIMOR LESTE: COMMUNITY BASED REHABILITATION (CBR) AND HEALTH DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

The Community-based Rehabilitation for Social, Economic and Health Development (CBR SEHD) aims to increase social participation and improve health and economic outcomes for people with leprosy and disabilities, by developing Self-Help Groups (SHGs).

During the last phase (July 2015-June 2020), the CBR SEHD project established 21 Self Help Groups (SHGs) comprised of people affected by leprosy and disability. The goal of SHGs is to act as agents of change within their communities – bringing health and economic development opportunities and promoting inclusion.

After the project phase was completed, an evaluation was undertaken which determined that the project would benefit from a two-year extension to ensure that SHGs had created strong linkages to become sustainable beyond the project lifetime. This extension will focus on building up the organizational strength of the SHGs so that their legal status will be recognized while linking the SHGs to a network of similar organisations that are in a strong enough position to be able to access soft loans for their members to undertake small businesses.

Social Return on Investment
Twenty-one Self-Help Groups were given training and support to develop small businesses of their own, at a cost of $69 per group.

Australian Aid Supported by the Australian Government
The CBR and SEHD Project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy and disability in Timor Leste.

TIMOR LESTE: THE RIGHTS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY PROJECT

The Rights for People with Disabilities project, which builds the capacity of eight Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) in Dili reached its midpoint last year. The mid-term evaluation found that the project is succeeding in raising the potential of DPOs individually, and unifying the disability sector as a whole towards wider advocacy aims. The project continues to build an advocacy movement towards the Timorese government for the ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities.

Last year, the project achieved the following:
• 8 Disabled People’s Organisations received funding and training on project planning, business management, keeping finances and advocating for disability rights
• 3,125 people were reached with disability rights advocacy activities
• 3 public buildings were modified for accessibility

Social Return on Investment
Training and advocacy about the rights of people with disabilities was given to 3,125 people, at a cost of $2.78 per person.

Australian Aid Supported by the Australian Government
The Rights For People with Disabilities in Timor Leste Project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy and disability in Timor Leste.

INDONESIA: POST-EXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS IN INDRAMAYU PROJECT

Indonesia has the third highest number of new leprosy cases in the world.

This project is implemented by No Leprosy Remains (NLR) Indonesia in partnership with Leprosy Mission New Zealand and The Leprosy Mission Australia. It specifically targets a high leprosy endemic region in West-Java to stop transmission. Through active case finding, new leprosy cases are detected to receive treatment. The community awareness programme will identify and support close contacts of a person affected by leprosy to receive a dose of Rifampicin, reducing the risk of transmission of leprosy.

This project will provide training and coordination to ensure health centres in Indramayu are equipped to refer, diagnose and manage leprosy cases. The project will also take a Post-Exposure Prophylaxis approach by administering all close contacts of anyone diagnosed with leprosy with a single dose of the drug rifampicin, which will reduce their likelihood of developing leprosy by up to 60%.

How to help us

General Donations

Here’s how your donation is used to help leprosy-affected people like Nagammal (her story below).

  1. Detection and diagnosis – your gift goes towards finding and diagnosing people like Nagammal who are “missing” or hidden away because of the stigma of leprosy.
  2. Treatment and cure – your gift goes towards Multi-Drug Therapy and the care needed for someone with horrific and infected wounds from leprosy. Nagammal is so grateful she has now been cured!
  3. Mobility aids – your gift goes towards items such as wheelchairs or walking frames. Nagammal can now move around independently although she has lost her hands and toes!
  4. Reconstructive surgery – your gift goes towards operations that restore function to nerve damaged limbs. Now Nagammal’s forearm has been surgically altered so she actually pick up things again… and cook, clean and dress herself! Even brush her own hair again!

“No one would ever touch me – especially not such an educated person. Usually no one comes near me because they are afraid they will catch leprosy from me…”

Nagammal was shocked to find the man from The Leprosy Mission wasn’t afraid of her disease!

He touched me, looked at my ulcers and bandaged my wounds.”

In the name of Jesus, we reach out to people like Nagammal. They may be among the missing or hidden cases of leprosy but Jesus knows all their names! He wants them to know they are loved. He wants to heal them and ease their suffering.

Nagammal should not have spent all those years suffering because of leprosy. Please help us find the “missing cases” of leprosy!

Please give today so people like Nagammal don’t have to suffer!

Volunteer with us

Do you have a passion to transform lives? 

Volunteers are central to the vision and mission of The Leprosy Mission Australia. Volunteer representatives are essential to helping people affected by leprosy and disability, and in Australia and worldwide there are more volunteers then staff members. 

You might want to do one thing, once a year, or you might want to spend some time every week volunteering. Or it might be somewhere in between. Whichever it is, you have the ability to help impact someone affected by leprosy in a positive way.

To apply for a Volunteer Role or for more information, please contact engage@leprosymission.org.au or call 1800 537 767.

Volunteer Prayer

Prayer is still a vital part of ensuring people affected by leprosy can attain healing, dignity and life in all its fullness. You would be willing to spend regular time praying on behalf of people affected by leprosy.

As Christians Jesus has sent us the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, and we can all pray. But you may feel particularly called to pray for people affected by leprosy.

We will send you a Prayer Diary once a year, and a monthly prayer update.

Volunteer Resource Distributor

In this role, you will be distributing updates about people affected by leprosy to your community. This could be your church, your community group (ie Rotary), your local library, your local café or even your Bible Study Group (or all of them!).

You would ask whichever group, or groups if they would be happy to receive some literature about people affected by leprosy, what type of literature, how many copies would be appropriate, and how frequently.

You would let us know how much literature you needed sent, and how often you needed it sent. Then at those times you would receive a little parcel containing the relevant material. Then you would distribute that to the right location.

Volunteer Cuppa For a Cure Host

Host a morning or afternoon tea party to raise funds to fight leprosy. When you host a Cuppa for a Cure event, you help provide treatment for people affected by leprosy.

Morning or afternoon tea, anywhere or anytime. Hold it as part of a special event or celebration, a gathering with your friends at home, at church or in your group. We can provide you with the resources and newsletters you need.

You can do this at home, at a community hall, or even at church.

Volunteer Church Representative

Churches are a key part of helping free people from the chains affected by leprosy both overseas and in Australia. In many countries partner churches help deliver services to people affected by leprosy.

In Australia partner churches have people who pray for people affected by leprosy, who support people affected by leprosy financially.

As a volunteer Church Representative you are passionate about your faith community empowering people affected by leprosy in the name of Jesus Christ.

Volunteer Fundraiser

You love reading Paul’s exhortations to the Macedonians to encourage them to fundraise. You know what a difference a few dollars can make to some affected by leprosy.

This is a role with a great deal of opportunity around what you can do. It can range from you holding a morning tea and inviting people to come, and collecting a gold coin from everyone, to speaking at events, to holding gala dinners to raise money. In fact you could do any, all or something entirely different.

We certainly have suggestions: bake sales, events, selling jam – asking people for money! But this is a role which would suit your own take, and your own creativity.

Volunteer in the Office

Did you know there are more volunteers than staff for The Leprosy Mission in Australia? There are a variety of ways you can volunteer in the office, from helping with the Merchandise Department to helping pack KIT newsletters for the Communications Team.

You may want to help people affected by leprosy by utilising your graphic design skills. Or your accounting skills. Or you might be great at talking to people. Or have neat handwriting. We may have a role for you to volunteer in!

Volunteer Stallholder

Our shopping can help people empower people affected by leprosy. When people purchase from The Leprosy Mission Catalogue, they have a double impact: empowering people affected by leprosy and disability who produce many of the products, and the profits help people affected by leprosy.

If you love talking to people, and you enjoy the hustle and bustle of markets, you may love helping people affected by leprosy out in this way. You would receive goods on consignment and would sell them at your church, car boot sales, or wherever else you might have the opportunity. You could even make a night of it and invite people over for a night of coffee, desserts and shopping from the goods you have on display!

Volunteer Speaker

Australians love to help others. Unfortunately not many Australians know every two minutes someone is diagnosed with leprosy.

You are able (or willing to be trained) to speak about this publicly, sharing with others how they can help break the chains of leprosy and empower people affected by leprosy.

Take on and give talks about leprosy at churches, Bible Study Groups, community groups (ie Rotary), or schools – or anywhere you can!

Archivist

More than 100 years of service to people affected by leprosy generates a lot of artifacts. At the office in Box Hill, Melbourne there is a room full of photos, slides, CDs and other historical materials requiring sorting. We’d like to make these precious items available to interested supporters. 

Would you be able to help sort and prepare this material for The Leprosy Mission Australia’s archives? Some archival or librarian experience is required.

We will be able to provide instructions and help as needed.

For further information contact Nerida on 03 9890 0577 or via email

• 325 appropriate footwear, orthotic aids and prostheses provided to people affected by leprosy to improve mobility and function across both hospitals.

• 4,143 people affected by leprosy received physiotherapy services in the Philadelphia Leprosy Hospital Salur.

INDIA: VOCATIONAL TRAINING CENTRE PROJECT

Vocational training centres teach a wide variety of technical skills for people affected by leprosy and general disability. This means that they can obtain employment and independently support their families.

This training includes cutting and sewing, diesel mechanics, dressmaking, electrician, motor vehicle mechanics, animal husbandry.

The Leprosy Mission Australia is supporting the Vadathorasalur Vocational Centre in India which is situated on the grounds of The Leprosy Mission’s Vadathorasalur Hospital.

Over the next five years, the project aims to ensure healing, dignity and inclusion for a minimum of 670 young people affected by leprosy and disability and 200 underprivileged girls and women.

INDIA: INCLUSIVE EMPOWERMENT PROJECT

The new Inclusive Empowerment project merges the advocacy and disability management activities of the PARTI (Partnerships, Advocacy, Research and Training towards Inclusion) project with the livelihoods work of SOAR project SOAR (a sister project supported by The Leprosy Mission England & Wales) and the development of civil society organisations through the CREATE project. The desired result is a comprehensive model of inclusive development and rehabilitation for people affected by leprosy and disability.

The PARTI project ended in December 2018, having focused on assisting people with disabilities to claim their rights with regards to employment, education, healthcare, government entitlements, and community participation. Engaging with people with disabilities at a village level, the PARTI project raised up ‘leprosy and disability champions’ to advocate for their rights and be an example to others.

PARTI’s achievements last year include:
• 650 households screened for leprosy
• 16 new cases of leprosy diagnosed, including seven children
• 472 people received disability management services and training in self-care
• 3,050 people reached with activities advocating for disability rights

Social Return on Investment
Last year, 2,219 students received training on safe and inclusive Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) practices, at a cost of $0.38 per student.

NEPAL: EDUCATION PROGRAM

The SER (Socio-Economic Rehabilitation) Education Program aims to support 100 students (from primary school through to college) with scholarships to contribute to school fees, uniforms and supplies. Students are either directly affected or the dependents of people affected by leprosy or disability. The Education Program team also provides counselling sessions to parents in students in order to encourage girls to stay in school and receive an education.

The SER Education Program works towards ensuring an education for children who are either affected by leprosy, have a physical disability or are dependent on leprosy affected parents.

This program provides scholarship support to children living in poverty as a result of disease or disability to secure a better life and hopeful future. The support is equivalent to approximately AU$120 per student which contributes to school fees, uniforms and supplies. Without this scholarship support, many of these students would have stopped advancing their education level.

As a result of this project, children have had the opportunity to complete their studies from primary school through to college, resulting in recipients also graduating with university degrees and securing jobs.

Children are provided with support based on recommendations provided by Self-Help Groups (SHGs), Cooperative members, local government and schools where students are studying.

The Education Program team also helps socialise teachers and schools to disability accessibility and creating a stigma-free learning environment.

NEPAL: ANANDABAN HOSPITAL SELF-CARE UNIT

The Self Care Unit (SCU) at Anandaban Hospital provides Self Care education to people affected by leprosy.  It is essential for people with leprosy-related sensory loss and muscle weakness to learn how to prevent injury and care for their wounds. The Self Care Unit provides practical training to do this to prevent the development of further injury or disability. The unit also distributes assistive devices like footwear.

The SCU provides self-care residential training to equip individuals to practically and psychologically participate in family and community life again. A typical Nepali house was built on the Anandaban Hospital compound specifically to train people in self-care practices.

The Participatory Action for Community Empowerment and Development (PACED CHAMP) project concluded in 2019. The next phase of the project, IMPACT, will continue action toward leprosy and preventable disease control using the SHG/Cooperative model in three new districts: Rupandehi, Kapilbastu and Parasi.

Last year, the PACED CHAMP project achieved many successes, including:
• 160 people received Prevention of Disability training
• 608 people reached with training on family violence
• 1832 members of Self-Help Groups

Australian Aid Supported by the Australian Government
The PACED CHAMP project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy and disability in Nepal.

NEPAL: RECLAIM EASTERN DEVELOPMENT REGION PROJECT

Implemented by the Nepal Leprosy Fellowship, RECLAIM 2 works to develop communities on the Terai plains of Nepal through empowering people affected by leprosy and disability by forming Self-Help Groups and Cooperatives.

RECLAIM II uses a SHG/Cooperative model to help develop communities. The project team and the SHGs help find new cases of leprosy, and the project tries to remove barriers to full social inclusion for people with disabilities, such as through MCR footwear or self-care training.

NIGERIA: INTEGRATED NEGLECTED TROPICAL DISEASE AND DISABILITY PROJECT

This project aimed to increase access to quality leprosy, lymphatic filariasis (LF) and disability services within an integrated health system for communities in Zamfara. The project worked closely with the Government’s Department of Health to improve health services, train health workers, and increase access to health clinics at a local level. The project also worked with communities to help ensure people with disabilities were included in society.

The Integrated NTD and Disability Project commenced in July 2014.  Now in its third year, some recent achievements over the past 12 months include:

• 500 people participated in prevention of disability training

• 296 new leprosy cases detected

• Campaigns conducted across schools and communities to educate people on water, hygiene and sanitation practices reached over 4,000 people

• 173 people were assessed and provided with assistive devices (such as walking frames and wheelchairs).

PAPUA NEW GUINEA: LEPROSY CONTROL PROJECT IN WESTERN PROVINCE PROJECT

The Leprosy Mission Australia is partnering with The Leprosy Mission PNG on a new project, ‘Leprosy Support in Western Province’. This project operates in the Western Province, where villages and health clinics are often remotely located and difficult to access. Often it is very difficult to both reach leprosy patients – people like Lily (read her story below). Ensuring local health workers have leprosy knowledge is also a challenge.

This project seeks to train health workers at the clinical level in leprosy diagnosis, treatment and management, to ensure every clinic across Western Province has two health workers with leprosy expertise. The project will also monitor MDT supply, and train community members to spread awareness about leprosy, and other health issues.

THAILAND: THE MCKEAN HOSPITAL BASED LEPROSY CONTROL PROJECT

This specific project, begun in July 2017, continues to provide healthcare and disability services to marginalised and disadvantaged people in Thailand.  This strengthens health services in the northern and western border-regions. Your support also provides assistive devices and vocational training to people affected by leprosy and/or disability.

YOUR IMPACT / SOCIAL RETURN ON INVESTMENT:

Thanks to you, refugees affected by leprosy and other disabilities were assisted to travel to Chiang Mai, where they were able to receive appropriate treatment. In addition, McKean arranged for Thai language classes, counselling services, housing, and community groups for refugees to share their experiences and make friends. Not only have the patients displayed incredible physical improvement, but they have also been able to settle in and establish a new life for themselves in Thailand thanks to McKean’s help.

THAILAND: THE MCKEAN ELDERLY LEPROSY RESIDENTIAL CARE PROJECT

This phase of the project began in July 2017 and provides elderly disabled leprosy patients with quality, holistic residential care support in northern and western border regions of Thailand.

Due to past experiences of stigma, social rejection and dislocation from families, elderly people affected by leprosy can lack a social support network.  Because of ongoing, and often worsening disability, elderly people affected by leprosy experience increasing immobility, dependency and lessening quality of life.

Social exclusion, limited education and limited mobility,  can cause a lack awareness for these people their rights to access government benefits (e.g. disability pensions).

This project aims to provide housing and strengthen leprosy and disability services for these elderly people in northern and western border regions of Thailand.

THAILAND: THE MCKEAN SENIOR CENTRE LEPROSY CONTROL AND REHABILIATION PROJECT

The McKean Senior Centre (formerly known as McKean Rehabilitation Centre) provides many services to the community in Chiang Mai, among which is a three-pronged leprosy program.

Firstly, the hospital-based leprosy control program treats people at McKean’s on-site hospital, including migrants and refugees who struggle to access healthcare in the public system.

The community-based leprosy control program works with government health workers to ensure people living in the community are diagnosed and treated for leprosy effectively and without discrimination.

Finally, McKean continues to provide accommodation and care to 28 elderly leprosy-affected people. The residents frequently host visits from primary Thai students and medical students from around the world to talk about the legacy of leprosy stigma and discrimination in Thailand.

Social Return on Investment

Through McKean’s hospital, 48 people affected by leprosy or disability were provided with assistive footwear, at a cost of $22 per person.

TIMOR LESTE: IMPROVED LEPROSY SERVICES PROJECT

The new project, Improved Leprosy Services in Timor Leste (ILS), will keep up the work of the Better Health project (which concluded in 2019) in three districts, and expand to a fourth – Manatuto – which has seen a worrying trend of emerging leprosy cases recently.

The ILS project will also develop an exit-strategy for The Leprosy Mission Timor Leste’s engagement with the Ministry of Health, in order to promote sustainability.

The Better Health project worked to eliminate leprosy in the high-endemic districts of Dili, Baucau and Oecusse. Working as the official partner of the Timorese Ministry of Health in the National Leprosy Control Program, Better Health strengthened early detection of leprosy to help minimise transmission and disability in affected communities.

Last year, the project achieved the following:
• Leprosy information material distributed to 41,937 people
• 25,817 people screened for leprosy
• 102 new cases of leprosy diagnosed
• 191 health workers trained in leprosy detection and management

Social Return on Investment
The Better Health project screened household members and neighbours of people newly diagnosed with leprosy, in order to catch further cases quickly. At a cost of $3.25 each, 445 people were screened.

Australian Aid Supported by the Australian Government
The Better Health Project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy and disability in Timor Leste.

TIMOR LESTE: COMMUNITY BASED REHABILITATION (CBR) AND HEALTH DEVELOPMENT PROJECT

The Community-based Rehabilitation for Social, Economic and Health Development (CBR SEHD) aims to increase social participation and improve health and economic outcomes for people with leprosy and disabilities, by developing Self-Help Groups (SHGs).

During the last phase (July 2015-June 2020), the CBR SEHD project established 21 Self Help Groups (SHGs) comprised of people affected by leprosy and disability. The goal of SHGs is to act as agents of change within their communities – bringing health and economic development opportunities and promoting inclusion.

After the project phase was completed, an evaluation was undertaken which determined that the project would benefit from a two-year extension to ensure that SHGs had created strong linkages to become sustainable beyond the project lifetime. This extension will focus on building up the organizational strength of the SHGs so that their legal status will be recognized while linking the SHGs to a network of similar organisations that are in a strong enough position to be able to access soft loans for their members to undertake small businesses.

Social Return on Investment
Twenty-one Self-Help Groups were given training and support to develop small businesses of their own, at a cost of $69 per group.

Australian Aid Supported by the Australian Government
The CBR and SEHD Project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy and disability in Timor Leste.

TIMOR LESTE: THE RIGHTS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITY PROJECT

The Rights for People with Disabilities project, which builds the capacity of eight Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs) in Dili reached its midpoint last year. The mid-term evaluation found that the project is succeeding in raising the potential of DPOs individually, and unifying the disability sector as a whole towards wider advocacy aims. The project continues to build an advocacy movement towards the Timorese government for the ratification of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of People with Disabilities.

Last year, the project achieved the following:
• 8 Disabled People’s Organisations received funding and training on project planning, business management, keeping finances and advocating for disability rights
• 3,125 people were reached with disability rights advocacy activities
• 3 public buildings were modified for accessibility

Social Return on Investment
Training and advocacy about the rights of people with disabilities was given to 3,125 people, at a cost of $2.78 per person.

Australian Aid Supported by the Australian Government
The Rights For People with Disabilities in Timor Leste Project is supported by the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP). Thanks to ANCP, this project is able to help improve the well-being of people affected by leprosy and disability in Timor Leste.

INDONESIA: POST-EXPOSURE PROPHYLAXIS IN INDRAMAYU PROJECT

Indonesia has the third highest number of new leprosy cases in the world.

This project is implemented by No Leprosy Remains (NLR) Indonesia in partnership with Leprosy Mission New Zealand and The Leprosy Mission Australia. It specifically targets a high leprosy endemic region in West-Java to stop transmission. Through active case finding, new leprosy cases are detected to receive treatment. The community awareness programme will identify and support close contacts of a person affected by leprosy to receive a dose of Rifampicin, reducing the risk of transmission of leprosy.

This project will provide training and coordination to ensure health centres in Indramayu are equipped to refer, diagnose and manage leprosy cases. The project will also take a Post-Exposure Prophylaxis approach by administering all close contacts of anyone diagnosed with leprosy with a single dose of the drug rifampicin, which will reduce their likelihood of developing leprosy by up to 60%.

How to Help us

General Donations

Here’s how your donation is used to help leprosy-affected people like Nagammal (her story below).

  1. Detection and diagnosis – your gift goes towards finding and diagnosing people like Nagammal who are “missing” or hidden away because of the stigma of leprosy.
  2. Treatment and cure – your gift goes towards Multi-Drug Therapy and the care needed for someone with horrific and infected wounds from leprosy. Nagammal is so grateful she has now been cured!
  3. Mobility aids – your gift goes towards items such as wheelchairs or walking frames. Nagammal can now move around independently although she has lost her hands and toes!
  4. Reconstructive surgery – your gift goes towards operations that restore function to nerve damaged limbs. Now Nagammal’s forearm has been surgically altered so she actually pick up things again… and cook, clean and dress herself! Even brush her own hair again!

“No one would ever touch me – especially not such an educated person. Usually no one comes near me because they are afraid they will catch leprosy from me…”

Nagammal was shocked to find the man from The Leprosy Mission wasn’t afraid of her disease!

He touched me, looked at my ulcers and bandaged my wounds.”

In the name of Jesus, we reach out to people like Nagammal. They may be among the missing or hidden cases of leprosy but Jesus knows all their names! He wants them to know they are loved. He wants to heal them and ease their suffering.

Nagammal should not have spent all those years suffering because of leprosy. Please help us find the “missing cases” of leprosy!

Please give today so people like Nagammal don’t have to suffer!

Click here for more information on this role and the application process.

Volunteer with us

Do you have a passion to transform lives? 

Volunteers are central to the vision and mission of The Leprosy Mission Australia. Volunteer representatives are essential to helping people affected by leprosy and disability, and in Australia and worldwide there are more volunteers then staff members. 

You might want to do one thing, once a year, or you might want to spend some time every week volunteering. Or it might be somewhere in between. Whichever it is, you have the ability to help impact someone affected by leprosy in a positive way.

To apply for a Volunteer Role or for more information, please contact engage@leprosymission.org.au or call 1800 537 767.

Volunteer Prayer

Prayer is still a vital part of ensuring people affected by leprosy can attain healing, dignity and life in all its fullness. You would be willing to spend regular time praying on behalf of people affected by leprosy.

As Christians Jesus has sent us the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, and we can all pray. But you may feel particularly called to pray for people affected by leprosy.

We will send you a Prayer Diary once a year, and a monthly prayer update.

Volunteer Resource Distributor

In this role, you will be distributing updates about people affected by leprosy to your community. This could be your church, your community group (ie Rotary), your local library, your local café or even your Bible Study Group (or all of them!).

You would ask whichever group, or groups if they would be happy to receive some literature about people affected by leprosy, what type of literature, how many copies would be appropriate, and how frequently.

You would let us know how much literature you needed sent, and how often you needed it sent. Then at those times you would receive a little parcel containing the relevant material. Then you would distribute that to the right location.

Volunteer Cuppa For a Cure Host

Host a morning or afternoon tea party to raise funds to fight leprosy. When you host a Cuppa for a Cure event, you help provide treatment for people affected by leprosy.

Morning or afternoon tea, anywhere or anytime. Hold it as part of a special event or celebration, a gathering with your friends at home, at church or in your group. We can provide you with the resources and newsletters you need.

You can do this at home, at a community hall, or even at church.

Volunteer Church Representative

Churches are a key part of helping free people from the chains affected by leprosy both overseas and in Australia. In many countries partner churches help deliver services to people affected by leprosy.

In Australia partner churches have people who pray for people affected by leprosy, who support people affected by leprosy financially.

As a volunteer Church Representative you are passionate about your faith community empowering people affected by leprosy in the name of Jesus Christ.

Volunteer Fundraiser

You love reading Paul’s exhortations to the Macedonians to encourage them to fundraise. You know what a difference a few dollars can make to some affected by leprosy.

This is a role with a great deal of opportunity around what you can do. It can range from you holding a morning tea and inviting people to come, and collecting a gold coin from everyone, to speaking at events, to holding gala dinners to raise money. In fact you could do any, all or something entirely different.

We certainly have suggestions: bake sales, events, selling jam – asking people for money! But this is a role which would suit your own take, and your own creativity.

Volunteer in the Office

Did you know there are more volunteers than staff for The Leprosy Mission in Australia? There are a variety of ways you can volunteer in the office, from helping with the Merchandise Department to helping pack KIT newsletters for the Communications Team.

You may want to help people affected by leprosy by utilising your graphic design skills. Or your accounting skills. Or you might be great at talking to people. Or have neat handwriting. We may have a role for you to volunteer in!

Volunteer Stallholder

Our shopping can help people empower people affected by leprosy. When people purchase from The Leprosy Mission Catalogue, they have a double impact: empowering people affected by leprosy and disability who produce many of the products, and the profits help people affected by leprosy.

If you love talking to people, and you enjoy the hustle and bustle of markets, you may love helping people affected by leprosy out in this way. You would receive goods on consignment and would sell them at your church, car boot sales, or wherever else you might have the opportunity. You could even make a night of it and invite people over for a night of coffee, desserts and shopping from the goods you have on display!

Volunteer Speaker

Australians love to help others. Unfortunately not many Australians know every two minutes someone is diagnosed with leprosy.

You are able (or willing to be trained) to speak about this publicly, sharing with others how they can help break the chains of leprosy and empower people affected by leprosy.

Take on and give talks about leprosy at churches, Bible Study Groups, community groups (ie Rotary), or schools – or anywhere you can!

Archivist

More than 100 years of service to people affected by leprosy generates a lot of artifacts. At the office in Box Hill, Melbourne there is a room full of photos, slides, CDs and other historical materials requiring sorting. We’d like to make these precious items available to interested supporters. 

Would you be able to help sort and prepare this material for The Leprosy Mission Australia’s archives? Some archival or librarian experience is required.

We will be able to provide instructions and help as needed.

For further information contact Nerida on 03 9890 0577 or via email 

Got any other skills you’d like to share for a great cause?
