  • Children and families in difficulty
  • People with mental health problems
  • The handicapped
  • Persons with a physical illness and those convalescing
  • Seniors with a loss of autonomy who live at home

For many reasons including my heath, I am no longer able to pursue the role of webmaster for the Fondation.
By December 31 2009, the Fondation has to find a new webmaster and a new hosting provider solution.

A dream by a philanthropist

Mr. Adams had a dream, he fulfilled it and even surpassed his dream...

Voyez ce rêve et sa réalisation...

Philantrophy and you !

A wealthy person may be a philanthropist but one can be a philanthropist without being rich!

A free translation of the Petit Robert Dictionary:
"a person who is likes all human, a person who dedicates his effort to better the material lot and moral of humans (humanitarian), a person than has a disinterested behavior, is not seeking any personal profit

Définition du mot philanthrope par le Petit Robert : "personne qui est portée à aimer tous les hommes, personne qui s'emploie à améliorer le sort matériel et moral des hommes (humanitariste), personne qui a une conduite désintéressée, ne cherche aucun profit".
