No one should suffer or die from a curable disease.
Go with us to the ends of the earth to honour this pledge.
Neglected tropical diseases
occur in poor countries. Although they are easily curable, one in five of the world's population is a victim.
People with disabilities
are severely disadvantaged in poor countries. Their chances of a normal life are slim.
are cut off from the rest of the world. Hospitals are difficult to reach, there is no access to doctors, the hygiene is inadequate.
Health system shaken by refugee crisis
Cameroon also has a refugee crisis. Refugees from the Central African Republic have been flocking to Cameroon for ten years. Most of the refugees are cattle-herders and traders and belong to the ethnic group of the Bororo.
School subject: leprosy
Hasina has recovered her health. This is not something to take for granted, as she suffers from an advanced stage of leprosy.
Surviving in spite of deforestation
With no land or rights, no clean drinking water or any kind of healthcare, the Pygmies are the weakest members of African society.
Step by step
When Jeannette Gwatah and her son Marcel were born, the joints of their feet were distorted. Aided by physiotherapy, they are striving to lead a normal life.
What we do
Even those who are in poverty, disadvantaged or live in isolation should be allowed to be healthy. We help these people to stay healthy or to recover their health.
Training local health teams
In the project countries, we are staffed exclusively by locals.
Setting up mobile operations teams
Using bicycles, motorcycles and boats, we reach people in the most remote regions.
In our project countries, we convince people of the importance of good hygiene.
