Leprosy Mission Youth Advocate Scholarship 2019

the team

A mission trip to Nepal in early 2019 – will you join the team?

The Leprosy Mission New Zealand’s Youth Advocate Scholarships enable students with a passion for overseas mission to experience our work, learn about the causes and consequences of leprosy, share time with people affected by leprosy and raise awareness and funding for Leprosy Mission projects.

In the past eight years the Leprosy Mission has organised a team who traveled to Kathmandu, Nepal. They will organise another team in 2019 to experience the continuing progress in the aftermath of the earthquakes on some of Nepal’s most vulnerable people – people affected by leprosy.

The past Youth Advocates have provided funding for vehicles and electricity generators that have been vital for the effective delivery of services at the Leprosy Mission’s Anandaban Hospital following the earthquakes. The hospital has managed a tide of crush injuries in makeshift wards and sending teams into the community to assess and attend to their needs.

Past Youth Advocates had this to say…

“Amazing trip that has included so much in a short time”

“The complete environment – place, people, experiences have all been perfect”

“My favourite was when we went into Anandaban Hospital and I got to spend time and take portraits of the patients, speaking to them with the little Nepali that I had. That was such an incredible experience!”

You now have an opportunity to be there and get involved.
