Damien Action

Jozef de Veuster, aka Father Damien, is my role model in creativity (inventiveness). His mission was to help people as well as possible, regardless of race, skin color, faith or past sins.

His perseverance, sacrifice, courage and inventiveness inspire me and he lives on for so many years after his death in all development helpers, volunteers and in everyone who cares for charity. This means that Damien remains a dream ambassador for Belgium and for all mankind.

Damien Action is a Belgian, pluralistic, independent and apolitical NGO. She holds the thought of Father Damien in honor and fights against leprosy, tuberculess and leishmaniasis worldwide. Within national programmes and with local teams, they work with more than 1200 employees in more than 16 project countries.
