72ft cat takes 5 tonnes of aid to orphanage

At the end of this week, a Privilège 745 will leave Alliaura’s base at Les Sables d’Olonne bound for Haiti and loaded with 5 tonnes of flour, sugar, milk, oil, pasta, rice, canned veg, soup, medicines and clothes. The aid will be sailed directly to an orphanage supported by Alliaura and several other municipalities, including the Town Hall of Saumur, L’île aux enfants d’Haïti association from Saint Brieuc, the Lions Club and the Rotary Club of Le Mans.

For more than 10 years, the Director of Alliaura Marine, the company behind the Feeling and Privilège brands, has been deeply involved in the development of an orphanage in Haïti. After the catastrophe which occurred last week, the Group wishes to reinforce its support by sending a Privilège 745 full of food and medicines.

Located far away from the earthquake’s epicentre, the orphanage is still running but children are shocked and they urgently need food. Usually, they get fresh supplies from the biggest Haïtian cities, but due to the current situation and the road network which has been highly damaged, it is not possible to get anything from there.

When the aid arrives, orphanage staff will welcome the yacht and its crew in order to secure the unloading. Then they will distribute progressively the supplies depending on the needs.
Hopefully this help will provide some weeks of relief to the orphanage, which welcomes more and more children every day.
