Viešoji įstaiga „Sugiharos fondas – diplomatai už gyvybę“ įkurta 1999 m. gruodžio mėnesį Lietuvos ir Belgijos intelektualų ir verslininkų pastangomis – prof. Egidijaus Aleksandravičiaus, politiko ir verslininko Ramūno Garbaravičiaus bei verslininko Freddie Opsomerio. Fondo iniciatoriai siekė sutelkti intelektines pastangas ir lėšas tam, kad Lietuvoje būtų įamžinti Japonijos diplomato Chiune Sugiharos ir Nyderlandų garbės konsulo Jano Zwartendijko atminimai. /

In 1999, as a result of the joint effort of the intellectuals and the businessmen from Lithuania and Belgium – prof. Egidijus Aleksandravičius, politician and businessman Ramūnas Garbaravičius and businessman Freddie Opsomer, the public institution "The Sugihara Foundation – Diplomats for Life" was established. The initiators of the foundation were seeking to unite the intellectual efforts and available funds in order to properly commemorate the name of the Japanese diplomat Chiune Sugihara along with the name of the Dutch consul Jan Zwartendijk. /

1999年、リトアニアとベルギーの知識人及び実業家は、「杉原(命の外交官)基金」を正式に発足させた。基金を開設したのは、日本の外交官杉原千畝の名を顕彰するために、英知と資金を統合しようとするものである。杉原の名は、オランダ領事ヤン・ツバルテンディク及び何千人もの欧州在住ユダヤ人の命を救った勇気ある外交官とともに、今の世代に人間のうちに潜む恐怖を思い起こさせ、また、友情と正義を思い起こさせるものである。
