Association Vivre en Famille
2014 Balzan Prize for Humanity, Peace and Fraternity among Peoples
Founded in 1993, in France, in order to provide foster families for children with mental health issues, the association later extended its field of activity to Africa. Today, it focuses its attention on the Democratic Republic of the Congo, but still maintains its original vocation of supporting international adoption and, furthermore, works to guarantee for disadvantaged infants hospital treatment, schooling, and clinics, together with medical assistance for mothers. The Balzan Prize funding is destined in particular to the creation of a maternity unit and the revitalisation of a school at Ibambi in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC).
