« I felt the need to take action for the benefit of Syrian refugee Children in Lebanon, in the field of education as half of these 400 000 children do not go to school. Instead of organising a charity auction, I preferred to put together, with my Artists and with the Managers of ART PARIS, a selling exhibition on the Grand Palais’s four large Walls and on the external walls of my gallery’s booth. In that way, the works will be seen by its 50 000 visitors during the Parisian spring and the media will undoubtedly highlight the generosity of these artists and the cause they support.

My goal is to raise enough funds to finance 5 schools for a whole year, and if possible for two years. It is an act of human solidarity and of hope in the future for these Children, a drop of fresh water, a well managed small action. The sale proceeds will be donated to the French association CODSSY.ORG, which heads several associations of Syrian teachers who are active on the ground and specialised in the education of Syrian refugee boys and girls in Lebanon. I signed a convention with CODSSY so that on one hand it provides each artist with an attestation of their donation and on the other hand it reports to us the activities of each school every 6 months. »
