World Leprosy day 28th Jan 2024

On Sunday 28th January 2024, we mark World Leprosy Day.

The John Bradburne Memorial Society (JBMS) endeavours to continue and uphold the legacy of John Bradburne, ‘Servant of God’ who was a Franciscan layman, who cared for the leprosy patients living at the Mutemwa Leprosy Care Centre in Zimbabwe for the last 10 years of his life until he was murdered. JBMS helps to provide essential items to the community at Mutemwa.

Leprosy is a curable disease, but unfortunately the stigma and lack of education associated with the disease, means people do not get treated early enough to prevent the development of disabilities.

Together with your kind support and prayers we continue our promise to uphold John Bradburne’s legacy in supporting those living at Mutemwa with leprosy.

Please promote this day to your parishes, priests, friends, and families. Thank you.
