International awards

Along with two St. Camille network partners in Europe and the United States, we have been active in presenting Grégoire and St. Camille as candidates for international awards. Last year, Grégoire was the recipient of the Guislain Prize “Breaking the Chains of Stigma in Mental Health”. Now he has just received the Geneva Prize for “Human Rights in Psychiatry”. He is also a finalist for the Aurora Foundation’s “Humanitarian of the Year” Award. These well-deserved international recognitions help publicize the work of Grégoire and his team for the benefit of Africans affected by mental illness.     

Maternity hospital in Bouaké

To meet the need for increased services at the Saint-Camille Hospital in Bouaké, Ivory Coast, we were
able to take advantage of a donation requested from the Louise Grenier Foundation. An unused space
will be converted into a maternity ward with a delivery room, mother-child services and pre- and post-
natal classes. Two midwives paid by the Ivorian government will be assigned to this facility. Budget
allocated: $17,000.
