Leprosy Mission Australia

January 26 was Leprosy Awareness Sunday. Here is a link to Leprosy Mission Australia's website.

The publishers of this website say that Leprosy Mission Australia is committed to the 'empowerment of individuals, families and communities affected by leprosy or at risk of the disease.  Such people often suffer from lack of choice and are usually powerless to change their situation.'

The Leprosy Mission Australia concentrates its focus of work within India, Nigeria, D.R. Congo, Papua New Guinea, East Timor, Nepal, Thailand and Myanmar.

Its website also invites you to be a 'prayer partner' to the Mission.

You can read all about it at their homepage here: http://www.leprosymission.org.au/AboutTLM.aspx
