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 the most vulnerable members of the society. [4]

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