The Association Mondiale des Amis de l’Enfance (AMADE – Worldwide Association of Children’s Friends) organised a dinner and show on the theme of childhood.

A few months ago, the charity that was created by Princess Grace showcased its key projects aimed at helping children around the world, at a special annual conference to mark sixty years in action for the charity. With a lovely evening event to celebrate.

About a hundred donors invited

AMADE currently supports more than 200,000 people, which is a real source of satisfaction (…) that we would like to share with our donors,” Jérome Froissart, AMADE’s Secretary General, told Monaco Info. On Saturday, around a hundred of these donors were invited to join the charity’s President, the Princess of Hanover, to enjoy a meal conceived by double Michelin-starred Chef Marcel Ravin, and presented in a unique fashion at the different tables.

My idea was a nod and a wink to childhood memories (…) I tried to take it to a gastronomic level (…) with plays on words, flavours and textures,” said the Blue Bay Chef. All on the theme of the evening, childhood, and the five AMADE programmes: “Dignity for Women”, “Civil Status for All”, “The Energy of Hope”, “Capoeira for Peace” and “Unaccompanied Migrant Children”.
