The Department of International Cooperation (DCI), which coordinates the efforts of Monaco Collectif Humanitaire (MCH), on Tuesday brought together project volunteers to thank them for their exemplary commitment that has enabled life-saving operations for 300 children in the Principality.

The evening was attended by the Monaco Red Cross, the NGO Rencontres Africaines, the Cardio-Thoracic Centre and the Princess Grace Hospital.

The DCI wanted to meet and bring together host families, doctors, and those responsible for administrative formalities. These volunteers are the links that enable MCH to exist.

The goal of the MCH is to operate in Monaco on children from developing countries whose illnesses, mainly cardiac and sometimes orthopaedic, are not treatable in their countries of origin.
