Removing pain, whether it is psychological or physical, and wherever it is found, is the aim of the NGO Douleur sans Frontières (Pain without border)! It is the personal cause of Pierre Muller, the ambassador of our model Chapter 3.
“Douleurs Sans Frontières” (DSF) is a WHO-recognized NGO that, for more than 22 years, has been committed to developing the management of physical and psychological pain around the world. With its 100 volunteer doctors, “Douleurs Sans Frontières” has carried out no less than 50,000 medical consultations and provided 2,500 hours of training!
“If pain management has become a health priority for the countries of the North, is it really a priority in developing countries, or in countries ravaged by conflicts or natural disasters?” – Alain Serrie, President
This sort of assistance is proving of great help in disaster-stricken countries, which don’t have the luxury of making suffering their priority, even though their suffering is no less important and no less urgent than that of anyone else! One needs to take care of the person who is suffering, while also taking into account their entourage, and the local players. In fact, training represents 60% of the investments made by Douleur Sans Frontières (Pain Without Borders).
“Douleurs Sans Frontières” works both in France, and extensively throughout the world: Armenia, Cambodia, Madagascar, Mozambique, Haiti…
How can we support their work? By making donations or by joining the association. Each donation can really change a life! At the moment a collection for Haiti is underway. Don’t hold back! And don’t forget their solidarity shop.
You can also become a volunteer !
