Monaco’s scheme to provide life-saving operations to children from countries where such procedures are not available has just passed a significant landmark. The Principality’s Collectif Humanitaire has celebrated its 300th operation at the Cardio-Thoracic Centre, with 4 year-old Fanta Coulibaly receiving treatment for an otherwise inoperable heart disease.

Thanks to the generosity of the Monaco association, little Fanta will soon go home to her family in Mali. Famous French footballer Olivier Giroud, an ambassador for the charity, was on hand at the hospital.

The soccer star plans to start a new round of crowdfunding to enable many more small miracles, offering signed memorabilia on social media. On Tuesday, five other children, between the ages of two and four, from Mali, Niger and Senegal were also at the hospital with their host families.

The Princess Grace Hospital and IM2S are also partners in the project.
