What we do

What we do

The poorest of the poor, the disabled and the inhabitants of remote regions should also be allowed to lead a life of health and dignity. Individuals affected by disease or those disabled as a result of disease deserve to receive effective treatment. We go to the ends of the earth to ensure that fewer people become sick, and to help sick people to recover.

Training local health teams

In our project countries, we work exclusively with local staff. They understand the language and culture of the people to whom we offer support. In this way, our staff work together with the local people to develop measures that help improve their health and lives.

Setting up mobile operations teams

Isolated regions are difficult to reach. Often, obstacles such as rivers or a lack of roads mean that is impossible to travel by car. Our mobile health teams overcome impassable routes with bicycles, motorcycles and small boats. Each one of our project countries can make use of vehicles that are precisely matched to the local conditions.

Improving hygiene

Good hygiene can sometimes mean the difference between life and death. Even small measures can lead to major improvements. Our teams advise people living in remote villages on how they can improve hygiene. For example, they learn how to prevent worm infections and how to build toilets.
