Les Enfants de Frankie spreading joy since 1997

Frankie the Clown by CelinaLafuenteDeLavothaThe association Les Enfants de Frankie (Frankie’s Children) was created on November 21, 1997, with the objective of entertaining and support disadvantaged children in the area. They work in collaboration with Social Services, Hospitals, Homes and more than 200 Humanitarian Associations. Frankie is the revered association’s clown mascot with whom everything began. He is a friendly and generous clown who transforms suffering into happiness. Frankie is a mime, who listens attentively to the world around him with compassionate ears, and offers support and brings joy to the children he adores.

Since its inception, the association has helped more than 100,000 children, and despite the ups and downs of the economic cycle, takes good care and carries out new projects each year. This perseverance and innovative ideas come from the President, which makes it a point to adapt to the ever growing needs of children while mobilizing the population in a fun way.

Every year the association carries out more than twenty individual projects for the most needy, such as the purchase of a wheelchairs for example, and organizes many monthly outing to entertain the children, showing them that there is another world beyond the white walls of a hospital or the gray buildings of a precarious neighbourhood.

Their famous annual event Noël de Frankie (Frankie’s Christmas), organized since 1998 under the high patronage of H.S.H. Prince Albert, welcomes each year over 4,000 children to enjoy the magic of Christmas. An event that is made possible thanks to the funds raised at the association’s annual Charity Gala.

Les Enfants de Frankie counts each year on its loyal members, as well as its generous donors. The volunteers are always present for the welcoming and the supervision of children during the multiple activities and very valuable support during the large events. Without them and without you, the realization of these projects could not be possible.
