The Damien Foundation is highly specialised. 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 organisations.We help in setting up easily accessible, sustainable, high-quality programmes. 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.
