The Saint Camillus Foundation of Thailand is a charitable organization in Thailand, set up and run by the Camillian monastic order.[1]

In 1995, the foundation, with the participation of an Italian priest Father Giovanni Contarin, established a Camillian Social Centre in the Province of Rayong. The center was built to provide shelter and care to homeless, indigent, and rejected people living with HIV/AIDS.[2][3] Special emphasis was placed on women and children, as they were most vulnerable.[4]

Saint Camillus Foundation also operates Camillian Social Center Sampran, caring for elders; Camillian Social Center Prachinburi, caring for lepers; Camillian Social Center Chantaburi, caring for elders; Camillian Social Center Chiangrai, caring for tribal children; and two hospitals, including Camillian Hospital in Bangkok and San Camillo Hospital in Ban Pong, Ratchaburi Province.[5]
