Supported projects

Training of first aid rescuer at work

[January 2014] A job seeker based in Strasbourg with financial, social and reintegration problems, wanted to be trained in first aid rescue at work. He saved some money to fund this training and he was even promised employment. Unfortunately, his savings were not sufficient to cover the full cost of the training.

In order to help this ex-prisoner to succeed in his employment, the Entraide-Solidarity association paid the missing amount (750 euros).

Third half

15 bags of rice to Madagascar

[June 2014] Alerted by the Congregation of the Sisters of the Divine Providence about the extreme poverty in the region of Fianarantsoa in Madagascar, the Entraide-Solidarity association has decided to donate the sum of €300 for the purchase of 750 kilos of rice.

The voice of destiny

[June 2014] in December 2013, the  Association Entraide-Solidarity had subsidised part of the hospital stay for Makaré, a young Nepalese, who was unable to speak due to a paralysis of the tongue. At her arrival in hospital, the young girl had to be treated urgently for a sever pneumonia contracted during her travel to hospital.

Unfortunately, the surgery which should have allowed her to recover her voice could not be done. The doctors judged the girl too old to have the operation.

The Association Entraide-Solidarity naturally took charge of the hospital bill to treat the pneumonia and paid the sum of €280. Makaré was able to go home but was still unable to speak.

School supplies for the Pachacutec shop

 [July 2014] In June 2013, the Entraide-Solidarity association contributed to a project of the Altiplano association for a games library in Lima, Pachacutec.

This year, the two associations renewed their collaboration to develop new services in the school supplies shop of the Altiplano Association in Lima. The Association Entraide-Solidarités awarded the sum of 260 euros, which amounts to the purchase of computer equipment, of a  guillotine and a binding machine.

End of tesis

[September 2014] As part of its local actions, the Entraide-Solidarity association funded the repatriation of the personal effects of a student. A difficult political context meant the student, who started a thesis in urban planning in Lebanon, was facing great difficulties in completing her research and had to return urgently. Currently hosted by a friend in Alsace, the repatriation of her personal belongings, including her notes for the thesis, will allow her to complete her project and build a better future.

The sum awarded is €900.

A family threatened with eviction

[September 2014] The Strasbourg Social Services asked the Association Entraide-Solidarity to help a family threatened with eviction. The family was living in a flat big enough to welcome the children, for which the father had shared custody. But financial difficulties due to an irregular income plunged the family into debt. With the help of the Social Services, the family promised to move into a smaller flat and to continue to repay its debts on a monthly basis.

To help them in their efforts and to avoid their expulsion, the Association Entraide-Solidarity awarded financial aid of €342.
