About

DAHW

WHO WE ARE

DAHW is an independent non-governmental organization supported by donors, volunteers and staff around the world. We collaborate with national and international players active in medical and social development co-operation and research. We form strategic alliances to achieve the best possible outcome. The entrusted funds enable us to fulfill our statutory duties in line with the principle of economy and needs-based support. We consider ourselves as a link between people who want to help and those who need help. We visualize the connection between disease and poverty so that people act with empathy and solidarity.

We assist people suffering from poverty-related diseases on a global scale. We focus on the needs of those with leprosy, tuberculosis and other socially excluding diseases and handicaps. We support medical and social relief programs that allow affected individuals to live a life in dignity and become empowered to be equally integrated into society. We conduct research in the interests of improving prevention, diagnostics and therapy, and medical, social rehabilitation for our target groups. We maintain national and international standards and encourage self-responsibility.

Our vision is a world in which no one suffers from leprosy, tuberculosis and other neglected diseases and the consequences they bring, such as physical disability and social exclusion.

We began our work in Sierra Leone in 1966 in Bombali District.
