This small, 100% voluntary, association was created at the foot of Mont-Blanc.

Our principal financial support is the UTMB for which our doctor and other members have worked for many years.

Classed as general interest with a humanitarian purpose, donors will be granted  tax relief on 66% of the amount of their donation, notably for solidarity race-bibs.

We would like to finance and equip an orphanage and a hospital in the bush at PAGALA (Togo).

Each year we fund the costs of education, health, insurance, electricity and food for the, around thirty, Ste Anne de Pagala orphans.
