A word from our partners: Dupessey

Cœur de Gazelles

Dupessey & Co, logistics partner of Cœur de Gazelles

The donations unit very important to the communities visited by the Cœur de Gazelles volunteers. The distribution of the donations requires significant logistics and organization.

Thanks to Dupessey & Co, the 160 m3 of donations collected from the Gazelles at the Rallye Start Village were able to reach the remote regions of southern Morocco.

Dupessey & Co, a company specializing in global transport and logistics solutions, became a Cœur de Gazelles partner this year.

In 2017, Dupessey president Carole and her sister Martine created an endowment fund. They then formalized their commitment to Cœur de Gazelles by providing the caravan with a semi-trailer to transport the donations from the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles Start Village in Nice to Morocco.

The truck is driven by Dupessey & Co employees, Alain and Hassan, who accompany the caravan every day providing valuable assistance for its humanitarian mission.

Cœur de Gazelles is proud to welcome them among its members.

How did you come to work with Cœur de Gazelles?

“We received a message from management informing us that a Dupessey truck would be accompanying the Cœur de Gazelles medical caravan and that we could apply for the selections process. I didn’t know about the association and I had never done any volunteering, so I was interested in learning more. We were lucky, they chose the two senior staff members. I have been working for Dupessey for 22 years.

I find the caravan impressive. I will have fantastic memories of this experience. I am very happy to be able to help give to those in need and to make myself useful.”

How did you come to work with Cœur de Gazelles?

“Like Alain, I applied for the selections, and since I’ve been with the company for 30 years, I was also chosen. I was familiar with the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles and Cœur de Gazelles but I wanted to see it from the inside.

I am Moroccan and live in France since the age of 18. I knew that Cœur de Gazelles went to help the remote villages in the south. I have discovered a big family; the caravan’s actions are great, and I can make myself useful by helping communication between the patients and doctors because I speak Moroccan.”




Dominique Serra has dedicated this 29th edition to Nasrin Sotoudeh – prominent Iranian lawyer and human rights advocate – who has been sentenced to 38 years in prison and 148 lashes for “inciting corruption and prostitution” by defending women who took off their headscarves in public.

I encourage everyone to sign the petition for her release.
