OL Foundation : A visit from the players to the hospital as part of OL's "Christmas Solidarity"
For their first visit, our players Amel Majri, Selma Bacha and Janice Cayman, accompanied by coach Jean-Luc Vasseur, gave their time to sick children at the Institute of Hematology and Pediatric Oncology (IHOPe), at the Léon Bérard Center.
Between a game of Fortnite and a foosball match, our champions and Jean-Luc Vasseur brought good humor and laughter to all the rooms.
The second visit took place at Bron's Women and Children's Hospital.
This time it was Lucy Bronze, Jessica Silva and Michel Sorin who helped the young patients, parents and caregivers escape from their daily lives and experience some unique moments.

Finally the third team consisted of Sarah Bouhaddi, Dzsenifer Marozsan, Griedge MBock and Maeva Ruiz (video analyst).
They traveled to the HFME, and got into the Christmas spirit; between distribution of gifts and shared moments, our champions brought happiness to the children.
These visits are part of a global operation surrounding the end-of-year holidays entitled "Noël Solidaire" which includes a blood drive organized with the EFS (French Blood Establishment), and a collection of toys as part of the initiative. Supporters groups Bad Gones 1987 and Lyon 1950 also brought support for the Telethon through a futsal tournament organized by OL Academy.
