Kiwanis District France-Monaco Club

Individuals in solidarity

Kiwanis is an international service club (founded in Detroit, Michigan in 1915) whose motto is "serving children around the world.

The Kiwanis District France-Monaco has about 4700 members in more than 250 clubs in France.

Kiwanis France-Monaco has been committed for more than 6 years alongside the Foundation For Rare Diseases to fight against rare pediatric diseases, through the search for new diagnoses and new treatments. This support is expressed through events that raise awareness and publicize the cause of rare diseases throughout the country: theatrical performances, film screenings, chocolate fairs, auctions, golf tournaments, etc. There are many ways to mobilize and more than sixty clubs have already joined forces with the Foundation For Rare Diseases to accelerate research.

Testimony of Mrs. Uta Joulian, Treasurer of the Kiwanis La Seyne-Six-Fours-Saint-Mandrier, delegate for rare diseases and initiator of the operation "Red coins".

"This project, initiated two years ago, allows Kiwanis to support the Foundation For Rare Diseases in its fight against rare pediatric diseases, through the search for new diagnoses and new treatments. (...) As we (Kiwanis clubs) are very attached to the actions of the Foundation For Rare Diseases, we have launched a new collection of red coins. It is not always easy to collect money that is destined to help outside the department for research projects. (...) The good reception from the shopkeepers and the generosity of the donors are for me a real motor to continue. This project is a good way to communicate about the Foundation as well as the vocation of Kiwanis clubs."

The International Order of Anysetiers

Individuals in solidarity

The origins of the International Order of Anysetiers (OIA) date back to 1263, when the guild of anysetiers treated the sick with star anise.

The OIA promotes the values of friendship, solidarity and generosity. It organizes meetings and events for its members, friends and supporters, to raise funds for social and cultural actions. Commanderies des Anysetiers are present throughout the world.

Since 2014, at the instigation of Jack Auzerie, the OIA has maintained a long-standing friendship with the Foundation, true to its ideal of 'Helping and giving Hope'. In 10 years, €75,150 has been donated in full to research into rare diseases.

Thanks to the remarkable mobilization of regions 9 and 10, as well as the County of Valentinois, three excellent research projects have been funded:

  • the first ultra-dosed formulation of methylene blue for the treatment of leishmaniasis,
  • the discovery of a new cause of OAVS syndrome, enabling better diagnosis and management of patients,
  • the creation of the first biological study model for children with Xeroderma pigmentosum (Moon children).

In 2023, the Bergeracois, Guyenne Occitane, Haut-Languedoc and Landes Commanderies have been particularly outstanding in their support of the Fondation Maladies Rares, and we would like to extend our warmest thanks to them.

Thanks to the support of the International Order of Anysetiers, nearly 40.000€ have already been allocated to research projects.
