Samana looks at the world from the perspective of people with chronic illnesses and their informal carers. That is our foundation. And on it, we build with enthusiasm and pride numerous activities and projects that improve their quality of life. For instance, Samana wants to empower people with a chronic illness to let them fully participate in social life. Alongside them are numerous informal carers and volunteers to help them do this. Those more than 20,000 volunteers are the heart of our organisation. Through more than 1,100 local departments, an extensive range of holidays, contact between fellow-sufferers, courses, information sessions and numerous other initiatives, they selflessly dedicate themselves to the whole of Flanders.
