Our French colleagues have supported 98 social projects in France since the Air Liquide Foundation started providing financing, in 2008. An exceptional score!
Whether preventing youngsters from dropping out of school early, or supporting people with disabilities: many areas traditionally covered by public intervention now need ideas & financing from “civil society”. That’s where NGOs, supported by our Air Liquide colleagues and the foundation, kick in.
The Foundation has also supported several scientific research projects in France, ranging from orphan diseases in the respiratory field to the understanding of climate mechanisms. More to come on these subjects in our next newsletters.
Our heartfelt thanks go to all our colleagues, from dozens of sites across the country, who have contributed to this success, with their time, energy and expertise. In this issue, you’ll find some of their stories, we hope you find them inspiring.
The Foundation and its team will of course be at your side!
The Foundation team - David Meneses, Natacha Brunet, Geneviève Capbern-Gasqueton - and I wish you a Merry Christmas & a great start to the New Year,
Jean-Marc de Royere
