The Presidency of the International Lepramissi Union held its meeting in Budapest between 7 and 11 April 2014 at the Benczúr Hotel. The 31-nation world body holds its biannual meetings in a different member country. This is the first time that Hungary has hosted such a prestigious leprosy mission event. It is particularly gratifying that this took place in the 140th year of the history of the International Lepramism Union, the 40th year of the Hungarian Lepramism Union! Almost without exception, the members of the Presidency were visiting Hungary and Eastern Europe for the first time. They were very pleased with the location and with what they saw and heard. We are proud that they are spreading the good news of our mission and our country all over the world!
