LUMOS is the organization of medical development cooperation set up and supported by the University Hospitals of Leuven in collaboration with the Katholieke Universiteit Leuven and UCLL. LUMOS mobilizes medical, paramedical, technical and organizational expertise for the benefit of healthcare delivery in Sub-Saharan Africa (Benin, Cameroon, DR Congo and Rwanda).

Supporting healthcare workers in these countries and improving the quality of healthcare delivery through capacity building is considered an intrinsic part of the mission of the University Hospitals of Leuven, and LUMOS is it’s vehicle for attaining those goals.

Every year volunteers head to Rwanda, Cameroon, DRC and Benin to share their knowledge and experience with peers.

The training and well targeted support of local healthcare workers aims to fully strengthen the structure of the partner hospital in order to have a lasting impact on the health of the general population.
While the focus is on North to South activities, South to South and South to North exchanges as well as regional educational activities are increasingly being rolled out. LUMOS also increases its efficiency and impact through collaboration with other organizations.

LUMOS has the support from their godfathers Rudi Vranckx and Steph Goossens, and will sell candles and fair products from its partner countries. More information about the celebrities supporting LUMOS and the products which will be sold can be found on the Facebook page. A visit to the charity booth offers a guarantee for Christmas presents for your entire family.
