A substantial part of the collections performed in France have been sent to our sailors so far. This is mainly thanks to people who have brought those goods with them while travelling to the Carribeans, see our previous article THANK YOU Le Ferradou.
The distribution of the 140 kg of goods (school material, backpacks, games) successfully took place on January the 9th. Ninon, Olivier, their kids together with Sandra, the local representative of the association “Help For Dominica”, went to visit three schools in Dominica. They distributed the goods to children from various ages and/or backgrounds: from primary and secondary schools, school for children with disabilities ...
The video below shows the keen interest of the children in the donations which have been sent. The dedication and attention shown by the crew while visiting their schools was even more welcomed by all.
It has been a real success and a great act of solidarity. We would like to thank again all the people who made this action possible, especially the school “Le Ferradou” in Blagnac for their incredible charity collection!
As far as we are concerned, we will continue to ship the remaining goods (approx. 140 kg) all along the “Happy to Sea” trip so it can benefit other children in need (Marquises islands, Madagascar…).
