The Fund’s founding members and partner NGOs are delighted at what has been achieved: a total of over EUR 750,000 collected and donated to date.

Since it was set up in late 2012, the Fund has run five separate appeals. It channeled contributions from BNP Paribas  and its staff  to rescue and recover efforts during the three major humanitarian crises which struck in 2013: the flooding in India in July; the plight of civilians who had fallen victim to the heightened conflict in Syria in September; and the devastating typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in November.

The Fund also mobilised aid to support the long – term activities of our partner NGOs in two other crucial fields: mother –and – child healthcare in Mali,Niger and the Central African Republic; and providing supplies of drinking water in Cameroon, Vietnam and the Democratic Republic of Congo.
