Thematic area




The context

In late 2017, several natural disasters caused unprecedented devastation in the United States, Porto Rico, the Caribbean, French Antilles, and Mexico. At the same time, Bangladesh was facing a major refugee crisis.


The project

To express solidarity for all the populations affected, Fondation CHANEL supports key organizations that are doing important work in the disaster areas: the American Red Cross, the French Red Cross, Save the Children, the Global Fund for Women and UNICEF.



The support

The funds are dedicated not only to the recovery efforts underway in Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico, and the French Antilles, but also in other locations throughout the Caribbean and Mexico. Part of this donation is also directed to supporting emergency relief for the refugee crisis in Bangladesh.

The results

The contributions provided by Fondation CHANEL helps to support the basic needs and medical attention required during the early days of any disaster. A special focus is made on women, girls, and children who are often the most affected in emergencies.
