First solidarity action for the Gazelles

PROMENADE DES ANGLAIS, NICE

The Gazelles ready for the start

The big day is finally here for the 262 Gazelles at the Start Village of this new edition of the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles.

Sun and smiles abound as participants wait impatiently for the flag to drop for the official start after a day of technical and administrative verifications.

As the day advances, the Start Village begins to fill up. Families, friends and onlookers mingle with the blue Gazelles vests and visit the different booths.

While they wait for the official start at 3:00, the teams set to work for Cœur de Gazelles. They form a long chain to move all the participants’ donations into the organization’s booth

Toys, clothing, shoes, books, medical supplies… Once again, the teams have risen to the occasion and have arrived with hundreds of donations. The Cœur de Gazelles team tackles the task of sorting them by category to facilitate their distribution. The donations will be handed out by the donations unit according to needs identified beforehand by the caravan’s volunteers.

The goal is to provide donations that meet communities’ real needs, transforming the simple act of donating into a partnership.

Once they have been sorted and repackaged, the donations will be transported to Morocco by DUPESSEY&CO, Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles partner and official transporter for Cœur de Gazelles.

Through this experience, they discovered the actions of Cœur de Gazelles in the field. Touched by the organization’s efforts and by the work done by its volunteers, Carole quickly realized that she could provide valuable logical assistance to the medical caravan.

In 2017, Carole created an endowment fund at Dupessey, chaired by her sister Martine. The fund’s motto: take care of yourself, others and the planet. Convinced by the values of Cœur de Gazelles, which

#FreeNasrin

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.
