Monaco Collectif Humanitaire
is a Monegasque NGO (non-governmental organisation).
It was started by PA
on his 50th birthday
in March 2008.
Eighteen Monegasque charities and associations, working in humanitarian aid and development, formed a joint project:
to perform surgery in Monaco on children from developing countries whose medical problems could not have been treated in their own countries.
One year after its launch, 1,200,000 euro had been raised, and a hundred youngsters had been treated.
Last week, PA
visited the Centre Cardio Thoracique de Monaco, to visit Basim
, a five year old Syrian refugee, who had just recovered from two consecutive heart operations.
The charity Rencontres Africaines
looks after the children from arrival to departure.
Another charity, Aviation Sans Frontières
, look after them during their journey.
It was the 128th
such operation .... so far...
Below is an article outlining the whole project
