The fundraising evening “The New Humanitarians, from the heart of the field” was held in Paris, New York and Dakar, with the support of the Africa, Europe and United States campaign committees

A simultaneous event on 3 continents

On Tuesday, December 7, ALIMA (The Alliance for International Medical Action) held its annual fundraising event simultaneously in Paris at the Palais de Tokyo, in New York at the Africa Center, and in Dakar at the Pullman Hotel, to close the Transforming Humanitarian Medicine fundraising campaign. The event was also available online.

3 funds and 1.1 million euros raised in one evening

This event successfully concludes the “Transforming Humanitarian Medicine” fundraising campaign which has achieved its goal of raising 10 million euros in 5 years to support 3 priority funds:

emergency response

Research & Innovation

Train humanitarian talents

Thanks to contributions from major donors, companies and foundations, a total of €1.1 million was raised on three continents during the evening.

Serge Morelli, co-president of the Europe Committee, declared: “By achieving the objective of raising 10 million euros in private donations over five years, ALIMA has demonstrated the strength of its approach. The support of so many major donors on three continents for a unique model of transformation of humanitarian medicine is an encouragement for teams in the field to redouble their efforts to help the most vulnerable populations.

From the heart of the field: a unique immersive experience

Through an immersive experience, event and online guests were transported to the heart of a field project, meeting the ALIMA team at the N’djamena hospital in Chad. Viewers were able to immerse themselves in the daily life of the team which, in partnership with the local NGO Alerte Santé, treats children under the age of 5 suffering from severe acute malnutrition.

A new private partnership with the CFAO group

The evening was also an opportunity to announce the signing of a multi-year partnership with the CFAO group, which is committed to supporting ALIMA for three years: “CFAO and ALIMA share the deep conviction that the continent’s development will go through the health, relying on local capacities. It is this shared interest in Africa, health and mobilizing the continent’s talent that has led us to form a fund-based partnership for emergency response and humanitarian talent training,” said Dr. Moumouni Kinda, general manager of ALIMA.

The next target: 25 million euros by 2025

Despite the considerable achievements made on the ground, many challenges remain. It is essential to continue the fight against child malnutrition, to act quickly against emerging diseases and epidemics, while going further in the localization of aid. In order to meet these challenges, ALIMA will launch a new campaign in 2022, aiming to raise 25 million euros over 5 years.

1.1 million euros: this was possible thanks to the incredible support of our three campaign committees: Europe (co-chaired by Tidjane Dème & Serge Morelli), Africa (co-chaired by Madjiguène Sock & Tidjane Dème) and North America (chaired by Pierre Crémieux), in partnership with the ALIMA Foundation.
