Advent France is supporting five organizations which are either performing vital work to help those affected by the outbreak or are in critical need of support to be able to continue their charitable mission.

Vital organizations receiving support
Hôpital Necker des Enfants Malades is the city’s premier hospital for children.  While Covid-19 only impacts a small percentage of children, this percentage still amounts to many cases in the greater Paris region. Our funding will help the hospital buy the specialized medical equipment it urgently needs to treat children affected by Covid-19. 
#changeladonne is a charity aggregator which is directly supporting six prominent frontline relief organizations, including public hospitals, emergency research missions and psychological support for emotionally distressed citizens. 
Les Rênes de la Vie is a leading hypotherapy organization for disabled children. It has provided essential treatment and education to hundreds of disabled children every year since 1982. Due to Covid-19, its financial existence is at risk, and our funding will help ensure that it will be ready to re-open as soon as confinement restrictions are lifted.
Café Joyeux are coffee shops where the coffee is manufactured, brewed and served by mentally challenged employees. Café Joyeux is the core initiative of Emeraude Solidaire, an endowment fund that was founded in 2010 by serial entrepreneurs Lydwine & Yann Bucaille. Our funding will ensure that rent expenses can be met and the continued employment the workforce will be secure.
Lazare is a charity with an innovative approach to helping homeless people achieve a more stable life. The concept is to have an equal number of former homeless people and young active professionals move into a house that has been renovated by the charity and live together as a family for many months. The founder of the charity has lived in such a co-living community with his own wife and kids for four years. Our funding will help the charity meet increased food expenses during a period when the tenants are less able to contribute to co-living expenses.
