Access to health services is a fundamental right, as reminded by the World Health Organization (WHO). Sport is an efficient medium for social integration and its beneficial effects on health no longer need to be demonstrated. Nevertheless, access to health services and sports remains to be developed, especially in disadvantaged areas.
The Foundation is therefore mobilising in favour of the well-being of communities in territories where the Group is implanted through projects linked to these two fields. It is also involved in international solidarity as far as humanitarian situations (epidemics, natural catastrophes…) are concerned.
