Who are we?

 

1.SOLFA Fund :

In 2007 Dr.Lorrie Vandeginste, together with Prof. Dirk De Ridder, Prof Kanigula Mubagwa, and Dr.Inez Vandenbussche, supported by the former President of LMS Jan Leemans, initiated SOLFA, the Solidarity Fund for African Women. Our points of contact and input were: the concern for the fate of women with urinary incontinence caused by a genital fistula, the willingness to share the expertise in urinary surgery, existing contacts with the Congolese academic world, and logistics experience with the Hôpital St Luc in Kisantu. From the start on the Fund has focused upon dynamic concepts, not only for health, but also for the economic situation fo African women by supporting programmes that would be able to improve their economic situation, and reduce their vulnerability. We opted for the structure of a Fund under the umbrella of the LUF ( Leuvense Universiteitsfondsen)

2. SOLFA International Non-Profit Organization:

CN 0826 098 916 

Adress: H.Verriestlaan 28, 8670 Koksijde

After 3 years of administration we felt the need for a legal personality for our organization.The financial implications of both the medical and economic programmes were more important than originally anticipated. Therefore SOLFA International was founded in 2010 as a Non-Profit Organization with the same vision and goals.
