Get to Know Us
American Leprosy Missions exists to serve as a channel of CHRIST’S LOVE to persons affected by leprosy and related diseases, helping them to be healed in body and spirit and restored to lives of DIGNITY and HOPE.
We love people by championing the physical, emotional and spiritual well-being of those affected by leprosy and related diseases. We advocate increased awareness, education and understanding in communities exposed to neglected diseases. Dive into our history.
We strengthen partners through strategic collaboration at global, national and local levels. We advocate for the use of data and technology to enhance organizations’ and whole countries’ action plans. Discover our approach.
We accelerate solutions through research and new tools that make it faster and easier to find, identify, and treat people affected by neglected tropical diseases like leprosy. We work to strengthen health systems to reach affected people faster. Learn more in our strategic plan.
Engaging the Church
We engage churches as a large part of the solution. As Christians we are called to participate with Jesus in renewing God’s creation. Together, we help bring healing and hope to those experiencing deep suffering: this is our integral mission.
Financial stewardship maximizes our impact across these four priority areas. We are proud to be:
- A platinum-level GuideStar non-profit
- A member of the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability (ECFA)
- An accredited charity at the Better Business Bureau
