Belgian medical development organisation
Let's act now, it's contagious
Damien Foundation is a Belgian medical non-profit organisation that works to assist people who have leprosy, tuberculosis or other diseases that particularly affect the most vulnerable communities around the world.
Damien Foundation has over a thousand employees. In Belgium, but mainly in Africa, in Asia and in Latin America. 99% of our staff is local. They know their country like no other and can teach us a lot. We act independently and take a long-term approach in our work. Nevertheless, we pass the baton on to the local teams as soon as they have the knowledge and resources needed to meaningfully tackle these diseases.
