OL Fondation : lancement d’une plateforme de financement participatif dédiée au COVID-19
Olympique Lyonnais, through its "sOLidaire" charitable fund, today announces the launch of a crowdfunding platform to allow everyone to make a donation in the fight against the pandemic that is currently affecting our country.

This action supports yesterday's announcement of a global donation of 300,000 euros, with the objective of increasing this amount thanks to the generosity of the Olympique Lyonnais community. There is an urgent need to support the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region in the most pragmatic way possible.

All of the donations collected thanks to donors will be made available to the HCL Foundation and the other emergency projects listed below.

The OL Foundation teams are already actively working to allocate the sums released to 3 essential areas:

- clinical research carried out within the Hospices Civils de Lyon;
- The purchase of materials and equipment for the Hospices Civils de Lyon;
- assistance to the most disadvantaged in connection with the Rhône Prefecture and the various key agencies in the area, including the French Red Cross, Habitat for Humanity, the Rhône Food Bank and the Foyer Notre Dame des Sans-Abri.



Olympique Lyonnais reiterates the urgent need to comply with all of the directives issued to limit the spread of this virus as much as possible and supports all the healthcare personnel they want to help as they need it.
