The Secours Populaire Français (SPF), or the French Popular Relief, is dedicated to fighting poverty and discrimination. And in honor of this year’s 70th anniversary, it’s organizing a giant party for children on August 19th.
Founded in 1945, this French non-profit organization operates on donations and aims to bring together people of all opinions, origins, and walks of life who wish to live in solidarity. It is particularly focused on providing victims of discrimination with emergency shelter, food, clothing, and referrals to health care facilities. The Secours Populaire Français also works globally, providing emergency aid and ongoing development projects, working closely with non-French associations capable of identifying local needs.
For example, here is the link to the SPF’s vital actions last summer in Gaza as it went to the aid of Palestinian children, traumatized by Israel’s sustained military assault that left hundreds of children dead, hundreds injured, hundreds disabled and/or orphaned.
