Join us to help overturn the stigma of leprosy
During the months following World Leprosy Day (31 January 2021), join churches around Australia and hold your own World Leprosy Sunday event at your church or in your small group.
World Leprosy Day is observed globally each year on the last Sunday in January, with the aim of raising awareness and knowledge about leprosy, the fact that it can be cured and to change attitudes that stigmatise and marginalise people affected by the disease.
Join churches and groups across the country and hold your World Leprosy Sunday to help overturn the stigma.
As the world has been brought down by COVID-19, the needs of people with leprosy are in danger of being forgotten.
People like young dad Nuhu, already battling disability caused leprosy, risk also having to battle the despair of being rejected by their community. Made to feel that they are broken, and somehow unworthy of being loved.
That rejection must stop. Now. Jesus never rejected people affected by leprosy.
Join with Christians all around the world to join hands for people like Nuhu. To love like Jesus.
The Leprosy Mission is calling on your church to dedicate one Sunday during the months of February to March for World Leprosy Sunday. Through The Leprosy Mission you can love like Jesus and help heal someone with leprosy like Nuhu.
