  • The Comapagnie Fruitière Endowment Fund and HumaniTerra initiate together advocacy work in favor of Universal Humanitarian Surgery.

  • 17 million people lose their lives each year by lack of access to simple surgical procedures. HumaniTerra is one of the rare NGOs specialized in surgery and bringing surgical care to populations.

A FIELD MEETING BETWEEN THE COMPAGNIE FRUITIERE ENDOWMENT FUND AND THE HUMANITERRA ASSOCIATION

The managing director of HumaniTerra, Xavier Dufrenot, while visiting the Saint John of Malta Hospital a few years ago, which is financed and built on the initiative of the Compagnie Fruitière, discovered the Compagnie Fruitière Endowment Fund. Initially it was the geographical location, the equipment and the Cameroonian hospital’s surgeons’ expertise that caught his attention. A few years later, in Marseilles, with the aim of developing the activities of the HumaniTerra association, the Compagnie Fruitière Endowment Fund became a privileged partner in enabling the deployment of the HumaniTerra actions within the framework of the camapaign “For Universal Humanitarian Surgery”.

By targeting 1000 signatures HumaniTerra is looking to “draw awareness” to the many national, European and international organizations (Agence Francaise de Developpement, Centre de Crise des Affaires Etrangeres, OMS, UNICEF, UNHCR, …), so that international funds dedicated to surgery be increased.
