Update from TLM NI's Director

Update regarding Covid-19 from Joanne Briggs:

The situation that we find ourselves in is unprecedented. Suddenly we are gaining some sense of what it might be like to face isolation from other people and from normal everyday life because of a physical illness.

In the past, your support and kindness have been essential in providing critical care and help for people affected by leprosy who often feel isolated and alone.

Whether we face the fear of leprosy, or the fear of Coronavirus, it is love that conquers fear. The sacrifices and efforts that we all make will result in lives being saved and the burden of suffering being lifted from the weakest and most vulnerable in our families, our communities and around the world. Demonstrating love, by being a good neighbour, will help us all conquer fear. 

Please join with us in prayer as we remember the most vulnerable in our own communities and those with leprosy, who are often the most marginalised and vulnerable in our world today. And let’s pray for our front-line health workers who sacrifice so much to reach out in care and compassion to those in need. 

COVID 19 is a global pandemic and as such is impacting different communities and different parts of the world in different ways. This includes people with leprosy who are already some of the world’s poorest and most vulnerable in our world today.  To find out more see news and stories below:
