Toowoomba Leprosy Mission Support group invite you to a Morning Tea on Friday 26th February at St Barts Anglican Church, Rangeville to hear about leprosy in Papua New Guinea.
In PNG recently there has been a sharp increase in leprosy cases diagnosed, some with severe disability. This is due to a lack of medical training and health educationÂ over recent years, and difficulty in accessing health care.Â Health workers need training in early diagnosis, because leprosy can be cured, and disability can be prevented.
Come along to St Barts Anglican Church, 103 Stenner Street, Rangeville, Â on Friday morning 26th February at 9:30am,
and hear Sheldon Rankin, CEO of The Leprosy Mission Australia.Â Sheldon will open your eyes to the deepening crisis situation in PNG, and how you can make a difference.
Admission is by donation towards training health workers in PNG.
Â For more information phone Penny on 4635 0516.
