Women’s group gives CHPG and CCT a generous boost

The Women World Leaders of Monaco, honorarily headed by Princess Stephanie, made a huge €40,000 donation to benefit both the Princess Grace Hospital and the Cardiothoracic Centre’s fight against cardiovascular disease.

Heart disease is ranked as the number one killer of women worldwide, causing more deaths than all cancers combined. In Europe, the condition kills one in two women. Furthermore, an estimated 17.8 million people of both genders die from cardiovascular disease every year, accounting for 32% of all global deaths.

Back in April, Women World Leaders of Monaco held an event, Evening of the Heart, as a fundraiser at the Yacht Club of Monaco in aid of the prevention of heart disease. On 8th June, the association proudly handed over two cheques of €20,000 each to the Princess Grace Hospital Centre (CHPG) and the Monaco Cardiothoracic Centre (CCT), the fruits of the charity event.

The two entities received their donations at the Ministry of State with Minister of Social Affairs and Health Christophe Robino, President of the National Council Stéphane Valeri, Director of the CHPG Benoîte Rousseau de Sevelinges, Director of the CCM Guy Nervo, Doctor Jean-Joseph Pastor, Doctor Armand Eker and Women World Leaders Monaco, who sported red outfits all in attendance.

After the ceremony, President of Women World Leaders of Monaco Chantal Ravera announced the next meeting to be held will be called Gestures of Life, and is scheduled for 22nd October at the Yacht Club. Another Evening of the Heart will also take place in April 2023. Additionally, a new initiative is being launched in March 2023, called Heart Day.
