Chelsea Football Club and French National team forward Olivier Giroud took time out of his busy schedule this week to fulfil his role as Heart Ambassador for the Monaco Humanitarian Collective (MCH).
The MCH is comprised of 17 Monegasque NGOs, four operational bodies, and four health centres in the region and is coordinated entirely by the Principality’s Department of International Cooperation. Since its inception in 2008, more than 400 children have been successfully operated on, giving them second chances at life.
After a presentation given by MCH to impart the collective’s most recent news, Giroud met with representatives from the Monagasque Red Cross and Rencontres Africaines, as well as caregivers from the Cardio-Thoracic Centre of Monaco (CCM), the Princess Grace Hospital (CHPG) and several local dignitaries.
He even took time to visit Jinno, an eight year old from Madagascar, who is returning home this week after an operation to repair a heart malformation.
Giroud will also be on hand Friday in Juan-les-Pins to receive a €10,000 check on behalf of the collective given by former footballer and World Volleyball Championship organiser Eric Roy.
The National Assembly has welcomed the latest graduates to the Principality’s Police Force.
An incredible 12-month time lapse video showing the creation of Monaco’s mammoth land extension project has just been released.
Monaco has a new bailiff, or huissier as known locally, who was sworn in earlier this week.
General crime rates in the Principality dropped by a significant 16% between the years 2016 and 2019, and street crime by an impressive 52%.
