The Damien Foundation is highly specialized. Ours is a long-term battle waged specifically against two diseases, leprosy and tuberculosis. The focused nature of our work sets our Foundation apart from other non-governmental organizations. We help in setting up easily accessible, sustainable, high-quality programs. However, we limit our project work to specific regions and countries. This is because our project commitment is a long-term one. As long as it is desirable, reasonable and necessary to do so, we will remain partners in a project.
Currently, Damien Foundation Belgium extends Damien's actions in a number of countries, in collaboration with the governments of the countries concerned and the World Health Organization. Damien Foundation Belgium has responsibility for projects in Africa, Asia, and Latin America.
