The Leprosy Mission welcomes new International Director

The Leprosy Mission International is pleased to welcome Mr Brent Morgan as its new International Director (chief executive officer). Mr Morgan takes over from Mr Geoff Warne, who has led the organisation for the past ten years as General Director.

The Leprosy Mission is a global fellowship of more than thirty member country organisations, working together with a shared vision of leprosy defeated, lives transformed. As International Director, Mr Morgan’s leadership role extends across the entire fellowship from the International Office in London.

Brent Morgan has worked within The Leprosy Mission for seven years as Executive Director of The Leprosy Mission New Zealand. Prior to this, he worked for World Vision and in the private sector.

“I’m really excited about taking the organisation forward,” says Mr Morgan, “and certainly feel that God has brought me to this place. I am really passionate about The Leprosy Mission achieving its global vision of seeing leprosy defeated and lives transformed, and in the process living and practising our values as a Christian organisation and bringing people closer to Jesus.”

Geoff Warne will continue with The Leprosy Mission until the end of September and will subsequently return to his home country, New Zealand. “I’m just excited for the future of The Leprosy Mission under Brent’s leadership,” says Mr Warne. “I look forward to seeing what great things the Lord is going to do in TLM in the coming times.”

Yesterday the 19th International Leprosy Congress in Beijing, China was opened with a personal letter from President Xi Jinping, paying his highest respects to people who work against leprosy both internationally and in China. In the letter he said the theme of the congress (“Unfinished business: stopping transmission, preventing disability and promoting inclusion”) is of great significance to the ultimate goal of creating a world without leprosy. He stressed China’s increased commitment to eliminate leprosy within the country, and its cooperation with other countries. The event, hosted by the China Leprosy Association, is being attended by 1300 delegates from around the world, including Philip Hamilton from The Leprosy Mission Australia.
