Why I love working for The Leprosy Mission

As she comes to the end of her 2 years on the Graduate Development Scheme, one of our two Graduate Trainees, Laura Stopczynski, shares her thoughts about working for The Leprosy Mission England and Wales.

Leprosy is a cruel disease which still destroys thousands of lives every single day. Witnessing what leprosy can do and listening to heart-breaking yet powerful stories from around the world, I have been humbled and reminded of God’s extravagant grace and love he has for his world, and for his people.

Being part of the team here, allows me to play my small part in making a difference and seeing lives truly being changed by the work of The Leprosy Mission. My role gives me the opportunity to use the skills that God has given me to bless others and day to day work towards something greater.

Through working at The Leprosy Mission, I get to hear stories and see with my own eyes miracles of light happening all around the world.  It’s a privilege to be part of a global family who despite living at opposite ends of the world, all have a common goal to see people affected by leprosy set free. It’s honestly such a great place to work.
