French Riviera Cruise Club assists Haiti children via Royal CaribbeanTuesday, 22 Octobre 2013
The French Riviera Cruise Club continued its humanitarian aid to Haiti for a second year via a project with Royal Caribbean International that is shipping donated items for children.
Games and toys were collected by the club to be loaded on board Liberty of the Seas, a regular caller at Villefranche-sur-Mer, on Tuesday for shipment to Haiti.
Last year the French Riviera Cruise Club donated books and school materials collected in Villefranche with the help of the municipal council and the Centre de Découverte du Monde Marin. The items were delivered to Haiti just before Christmas.
During this operation, Royal Caribbean took the opportunity to raise awareness among the elementary school children of the importance of respecting the countryside and protecting the environment.
The donation enabled the completion of a library. Extra books were sent to other public schools, and medical aid was provided to the Red Cross.
This year, the school director and some of the teachers requested toys and games for the children, prompting the current donation.

The summer exhibition at the Art Centre, “Picasso, le nu en liberté” (“Picasso, Nudity Set Free”), takes place as one of the events organised around the commemoration of the fortieth anniversary of the painter’s death. This new concept is at the heart of “Les Chemins du Sud”, (“Routes of the South”), the second edition of a photographic journey through Picasso’s life, consisting of enlargements of original images by André Villers, Henri Traverso and the photographer Lucien Clergue. Printed on stretched tarpaulins, the images sensitively and humorously cover the highlights of the painter’s life in three Mediterranean towns, Vallauris, Cannes and Mougins, where Picasso and his wife Jacqueline lived from 1962, in one of the last of his homes also used as his studio in Notre-Dame-de-Vie.
