OL Fondation : nearly 120,000 euros collected in the fight against COVID-19
Thursday March 19, 2020, Olympique Lyonnais announced a donation of € 300,000, through its Foundation, which was divided into two main areas:
- 100 000 euros to the Fondation Hospices Civils de Lyon (HCL).
- 200 000 euros for urgent local needs (materials and equipment for the Hospital, aid to the most deprived).
Olympique Lyonnais also appealed to its community to raise additional funds. Citizens and businesses alike have shown their commitment and their solidarity:
- Groupama Rhône-Alpes Auvergne, a major partner of Olympique Lyonnais and the OL Fondation, participated in the scheme by giving priority support to clinical research projects carried out at the Hospices Civils de Lyon,
- More than 300 people have also joined the process, supporters and citizens, all of whom are sensitive to the urgency of coming to the aid of the community, and each of whom has contributed to this initiative focused on our area.
Thanks to these numerous donors, almost 120,000 additional euros have been collected and will be donated very quickly to research and emergency needs.
