Today, American Leprosy Missions continues to lead a global fight against NTDs, working to cure and care for those affected, and actually end these devastating diseases in our time.

History

1906 - Thomas Bailey comes to New York seeking a stronger base of support for the London-based Mission to Lepers in India and the East. At his urging, The Committee for the U.S.A. of the Mission to Lepers in India and the East, the organization that would become American Leprosy Missions, is founded in New York City by a group of seven ministers, mission executives and businessmen. The meeting takes place in the home of William Jay Schieffelin in New York City.
