Extract of letter from Terres et Cultures Solidaires...
Personally and of course in the name of all the beneficiaries of Terres et Cultures Solidaires, I would like to thank you for the generous donation you have made, once again, to our association. In these difficult times, we are all the more affected.
This will be particularly dedicated to the co-financing of the women's GIE project (Economic Interest Group) aimed at strengthening women's entrepreneurship and the food security of families who have suffered even more this year from the difficulties linked to the pandemic and the recurrent lack of water aggravated by very high temperatures. We thank you once again for your generosity. Indeed, it is thanks to its loyal donors that Terres et Cultures Solidaires can initiate its projects which are always implemented after listening to the needs of the inhabitants so that everyone can take ownership of the actions and become real actors in their area.

Extract from the newspaper L'Indépendant - 01/03/2020...
For Christmas, the Restos de Coeur of Port Vendres doesn't forget the children...
Translation- Once again this year, on the Côte Vermeille, a solidarity chain has been set up so that the most disadvantaged children experience a merry Christmas full of gifts, even if the current health conditions have limited the ambitions of "Restos du cœur".
Thus, the children of the primary school of Banyuls-sur-Mer collected and wrapped the gifts. Then, the members of the association Vermeille internationale brought their logistical and gourmet support. The volunteers of Restos du cœur responded to organize and animate in the most joyful way possible, this day of the year which is so special and so important for the young. The children received gifts, books and sweets handed over by Santa Claus, bringing a moment of joy, kindness and good humor.
