The Leprosy Mission logo goes back to the 1920s or early 30s. It was designed as a woodcut by an English woman artist, Mabel Royd. This woodcut design represented Jesus and the man with leprosy who knelt at Jesus’ feet asking to be healed – and Jesus healed him (see Mark 1:40-42). It deeply expressed 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”.
