Yesterday, Shanghai Accueil organized a charity dinner-aperitif for the benefit of the Téléthon 2018, the occasion for ASI Movers - who happily joined forces with Madeleine Bakery of this event - to raise awareness on this cause. The Téléthon is a French charity event aimed at raising awareness and money to fight against rare illnesses.
Since the FIAFE (Fédération Internationale des Accueils Français et Francophones d’Expatriés - International Federation of the Welcomes of French and French Speaking Expatriates) committed to support and raise found in favor of the AFM Téléthon, Shanghai Accueil (whose mission consists in welcoming French and French-speaking expatriates in Shanghai) followed suit.
Shanghai Accueil organized a series of events with several partners:
- A dinner cocktail on Nov. 30th with the UFE Shanghai;
- A partnership with Epermarket from Dec. 1 until Dec. 8th.
- A dinner aperitif at Madeleine Kerry Center in partnership with Madeleine and ASI Movers. Yesterday's profits have been fully contributed to the Téléthon.
These events and operations demonstrate the commitment of Shanghai French and international communities to such important causes. The mobilization is indeed very important in Asia, and more particularly in China.
