About Us

The Orange Dragon Foundation is a non-profit organization that raises funds for ovarian cancer research. We envision a world in which every woman when confronted with an ovarian cancer diagnosis can nevertheless lead a meaningful life. This can only be ensured if we support scientific research that leads to availability in treatment ( more ethnic and social class inclusivity in trials, access to the research findings across the world, for example) and the development of new drugs that not only look to have an impact in increasing life expectancy but also in quality.

Our core activity is a world journey in a small car ( the orange dragon). The founder, Saskia, has embarked on this adventure along with her dog companion Kaira. Together they travel, meeting new people and seeking actively projects that built around four themes: world music, social justice, strong women and sustainability. This because we didn't want to focus on cancer only, but also on the beautiful things that happen in the world.

The journey takes place in two periods of 8 months. It runs from the Netherlands via south and east Europe to Turkey, and via Egypt, along the east side of Africa to Cape Town. There the car goes on the boat to South America for the start of the second leg. Anything can happen along the way, so we can’t predict the exact route in advance. But, you can follow the Orange Dragon from day to day on the homepage.

The money we raise will be transferred to a registered fund at the Dutch Cancer Society.
