Under the presidency of Prince Albert II, the 70th Gala of the Monegasque Red Cross will take place on Friday, July 27, in the prestigious setting of the Salle des Etoiles at the Sporting Monte-Carlo.
For the organisation founded in 1948 by Prince Louis II, this anniversary evening marks seventy years of help for the most vulnerable people, both within the Principality and elsewhere. The evening is a tribute to those who support the Monegasque Red Cross with donations.
Supported and guided by the deep convictions of HSH Prince Albert II, its President, the Monegasque Red Cross has continued to expand its help to alleviate the suffering caused by human tragedies that assail men, women and children around the world. In Monaco, 50 employees and over 600 volunteer members give their time to fulfil the Association’s missions both nationally and internationally in response to disasters.
In 2017, more than 74,000 people worldwide benefited directly from the activities of the Monegasque Red Cross, a figure that is twice the population of Monaco.
The 70th Gala of the Monegasque Red Cross promises to be unforgettable thanks to the presence of key artists, invited by the SBM.
This year the Monegasque Red Cross is particularly honoured to host Seal, the British legend of soul who became known in 1991 with the single ‘Crazy’. The same year, his first album SEAL, was greeted enthusiastically by critics. The evening is presented by Adriana Karembeu and Michel Cymes, accompanied by Maïtena Biraben.
Now more than ever, health is at the forefront of everyone’s minds. On 7th April, we have an opportunity to thank the nurses and midwives of the Principality during World Health Day 2020.
Monaco’s support workers caring for the most vulnerable in the community are making heroic efforts to maintain vital ties to the elderly and disabled, whilst trying to remain safe themselves during the crisis.
Since confinement began on 18th March, the Monaco police force has made 11,000 traffic checks on drivers entering the Principality.
Prince Albert has warned the National Council that its criticism of his government’s management of the Covid-19 pandemic is unnecessarily escalating the tension and uncertainty surrounding the crisis.
