AMADE, Fight Aids Monaco Agreement

  April 3, 2009 at 2:55 pm by

HRH Princess Caroline of Hanover and her sister HSH Princess Stephanie of Monaco, in their roles as President of AMADE and Fight Aids Monaco respectively, renewed the 2008 agreement between the organizations to assist AIDS orphans in Burundi. The signing took place during the 46th Annual AMADE Assembly in Monaco which took place April 2 and 3 and included a benefit dinner in the Empire Room of the Hotel de Paris on April 2.

AMADE (Association mondiale des Amis de l’Enfance) was founded in 1963 by Princess Grace of Monaco to help children throughout the world. HRH Princess Caroline was elected to the Presidency in 1993. Fight Aids Monaco began in 2004 from two smaller organizations after Princess Stephanie became alarmed about the high rate of AIDS infection in Monaco.

Today’s agreement continues an ambitious three year work agreement that continues to support both organization’s goals to help more than 830,000 Burundi orphans with basic services like medical care and prevention campaigns.

    I’m so glad the princesses have embraced the people of Burundi. I’ve been doing volunteer work among new refugees in the U.S., many of whom are Burundians. For those of you who don’t know, they have a very complicated ethnic situation, and many of them are from the same groups as in Rwanda, Hutu and Tutsi. Many of them haven’t even been to Burundi in their lifetimes because they have been in refugee camps in Tanzania and Kenya for 30+ years. Even before they left their homeland, their situation was not good. Big animals like elephants have been hunted out of Burundi since at least the 1950s so they haven’t been able to exploit the tourist trade. But if you want to be around patient, cheerful and loving people, I don’t think you can find many better than my Burundian friends. They love to sing in their native languages, wear native clothes, and share good times. What a privilege it is to know them and welcome them to my country.
