Modern Slavery Statement
This voluntary statement, in line with the Australian Modern Slavery Act 2018, sets out the actions taken by The Leprosy Mission Australia to address modern slavery in our business and supply chain for the financial year ending 30 June 2020.
The Leprosy Mission Australia (TLMA) is not required to submit a statement but has chosen to do so voluntarily as doing so aligns with our organisational values.
TLMA believes our commitment to following Jesus Christ means that we do not want to see people trapped in slavery. We are also aware that modern slavery overwhelmingly impacts people who live in poverty. Many people affected by leprosy are economically disadvantaged and face a higher risk of ending up in slavery. As people living in the light of Jesus, and committed to serving people affected by leprosy, we want to be active participants in preventing slavery.
