Guardian Angels of Monaco in Nice to help the poor

Guardian Angels of Monaco in Nice to help the poor

By Cassandra Tanti - November 3, 2019

Every Monday night, the Guardian Angels of Monaco take their show on the road and head to Nice to distribute 400 meals to the needy. Tonight, they will do so with special help from Princess Camilla de Bourbon of the Two Siciles.

The Guardian Angels have been leading a fight against poverty and hunger amongst some of the impoverished people in Nice for the past 12 years.

Eight Monegasque restauranteurs prepare meals each Monday and the volunteers meet at Place de Moulins to organise, before heading down the backstreets of Nice to distribute meals to needy souls, many of whom only eat this one time that day.

The additional help and attention brought to the plight of the poor by the presence of Princess Camilla is expected to highlight the problem and alert others to the situation.

“This is not the first time that the Princess has supported us, whether financially or directly on the ground,” Bruna Maule Cassio told La Gazette de Monaco in an interview last week. “The fact that she takes her time to volunteer touches us a lot, she’s an incredible personality with whom I’m proud to be able to work.”

The tour of Nice will be filmed and broadcast at a charity event hosted by singer Vlad Scala on 15 November in the Hôtel de Paris’s Empire Room. The gala will bring together many guests including the ambassador of the Guardian Angels, Victoria Silvstedt, as well as tenors and musicians from the MonteCarlo Opera.

The evening’s festivities will raise funds so the association can provide housing or pay the rent over the cold winter months of families in desperate straits.
