Joseph de Veuster, aka Father Damien, is my role model for creativity (inventiveness). His mission was to help people as well as possible, irrespective of race, colour, faith or past sins.
His perseverance, sacrifice, courage and inventiveness inspire me and he lives so many years after his death in all developmental helpers, volunteers and in everyone who cares for charity. This makes that Damien remains a dreamed ambassador for Belgium and for all mankind.
