AREVA Corporate Foundation: Moctar, cured, returns to his family in Niger

In brief

Suffering from a serious heart disease that could not be treated in his country, Moctar was operated on in France by Mécénat Chirurgie Cardiaque (MCC), thanks to a donation by the AREVA Corporate Foundation.

As part of a new partnership sealed between the Foundation and the MCC in 2016, a total of 30 children from Niger receive treatment in France. As many families host them, providing support during the months of separation and the ordeal of the operation.
