Mission Abroad: The Leprosy Mission

By Editor, Sep 25 2018 05:51PM

The Leprosy Mission (TLM) serves a population of 305 million people in around 30 leprosy affected countries. In 2017, 489 patients across Nepal received reconstructive surgery; 238 people in Ethiopia received training and an improved cooking stove; and 1,220 in Mozambique were supported by self care groups.

St Martin's and St Stephen's contribute annually to this Christian charity, but individual members of our congregations also support them in various ways. Box collectors raised £219.44 during the year ending Easter 2018. Some people gave used stamps, and people also bought TLM Christmas and Easter cards. TLM are always very grateful for our support.

Please look at the display board at the rear of St Martin's during October to see more information about their work.

Thank you.

Jean Hamblin.
