Cultural mediator Humanitarian Hub

De essentie

CONTEXT

Doctors of the World is an international medical development NGO which is part of an international network. We provide medical assistance to vulnerable groups in Belgium and the rest of the world.

We aim for universal health coverage where every person has access to care, without barriers (financial, cultural, geographic, etc.).

In Belgium and around the world, our projects are intended for all people who have no or restricted access to health care. In particular, they are structured along five axes: people on the margins of society (homeless or paperless people, drug users, sex workers, etc.); children in vulnerable situations; women (accompanied in their fight for equality and against sexual violence for example); migrants or displaced persons and victims of crises or conflicts.

To carry out our mission, we base our work on three pillars:

  • Caring : organizing real access to care for people.
  • To accompany change: more than to help, we want to change things in the long run.
  • Testify : we do not remain silent. Thanks to our experience and our presence on the ground, we challenge the people in power (local, regional and (inter) national) with facts, figures and realities.

Our projects rely on a series of values common to our entire organization: social justice, empowerment, independence, commitment and balance.
