On Sunday September 17, we invited all our host families in the Paris region to join us for a not-to-be-missed back-to-school event: the Fête des Familles!
As usual, we gathered in the magnificent grounds of the Château des Côtes, the convalescent center where children undergoing surgery in Paris go. We were delighted to meet up with "historic" host families who have welcomed over 30 children, new host families who have recently embarked on the adventure, and future families awaiting the arrival of their first little heart.
First, the association's teams gathered around Pr Leca to present future projects and new developments, and to answer questions from the 60 host families in attendance.
The day continued with a banquet-style meal, providing an opportunity for all these kind-hearted families to meet and share their personal experiences.
Thank you all for coming. The world's children with heart problems are very lucky to be able to count on you!
