AS Monaco is mobilising to support those who are working on a daily basis to deal with Covid-19. The football club is offering an initial donation of 50,000 euros and is launching an online collection of donations via its AS Monacoeur charity programme.
The Red and White team is giving its full support to those who are taking action, every day and for several weeks now, to limit the impact of this crisis. Through its charity programme AS Monacoeur, the football club is providing financial support to the Monaco Red Cross by launching a collection of donations online. This fundraising campaign, which is being passed on to the whole AS Monaco community, has been started with an initial donation of €50,000 from the Club.
“In this period of general mobilisation against Covid-19, it is important to show solidarity and for AS Monaco to be able to make itself useful through these initiatives,” said Vice President and General Manager Oleg Petrov. “Many people are on the front line every day in dealing with the crisis, including hospital staff and Red Cross volunteers, and I wish, on behalf of the whole Club, to pay them all the tribute they deserve,” he added.
The funds collected will be used to support the Monaco Red Cross’s projects:
- the actions being done on a daily basis by its employees and volunteers: call centre, supplying masks and logistical support for vulnerable people: supplies, deliveries of medicines etc.
- assistance to its International counterparts.
To donate to the Monaco Red Cross, go to Go Fund Me.
At the same time and in order to help the Principality’s Princess Grace Hospital Centre (CHPG), AS Monaco has offered to make its facilities at La Turbie training centre and the Academy accommodation centre (Jean-Jaurès centre) available to receive blood donors. People are allowed to travel to donate blood in collection centres, including the CHPG Blood Transfusion Centre in Monaco.
