The company supports associations working in the health field. In 2013, we offered our support for the French Association for Prostate Cancer Research (ARTP) and the French Rheumatism Association (AFLAR).
Association for Prostate Tumor Research
The Association for Prostate Tumor Research (ARTP) was founded after it was realized that fundamental and clinical research was very poorly developed in France to meet a medical challenge as significant as prostate tumors, one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality in men after the age of 40. The ARTP’s main goal is to help to address this worrying situation.
French Rheumatism Association (AFLAR)
The AFLAR aims to advance key goals in the fight against rheumatism:
- Advance specific knowledge and know-how, from information and education to advances in scientific research and prevention
- Improve the daily quality of life for rheumatics, and help them become actively involved in their treatment
- Raise awareness of the human and social and economic costs of rheumatisms
- Improve coverage of healthcare costs, prevention and research resources
HERITAGE AND CULTURE
Goya Museum at Castres
The Goya Museum, the second largest Spanish painting museum in France after the Louvre (Paris), is located in Castres. Our company has helped with the acquisition of several works by Spanish masters, especially “Christ waited upon by angels in the desert” and “Saint Regina” by Pacheco (1564-1644), the “Lamentations to the Death of Christ” by Vicente Masip (16th century), and “The Martyrdom of Saint Sebastian” by Sébastian Muñoz.
Dom Robert Museum at Sorèze
We helped create the “Dom Robert and 20th century tapestry” museum at Sorèze. This museum will be a location for tapestry collections from the Abbey of Saint-Benoît d’En Calcat (Tarn), containing 55 tapestries by Dom Robert and other 20th-century artists.

Les cordées de la réussite

It facilitates access to higher education for deserving young people, who, because of their social or regional origins would otherwise be unable to successfully undertake a long-term education program.
We provide essential products and medicines to the Tulipe Association. As a non-governmental organization governed by the French Law of 1901, Tulipe combines donations from healthcare companies to provide an emergency response to the needs of people in distress during acute sanitary crises, natural disasters and conflicts. Its intervention involves making rapidly available emergency kits with healthcare products that are suitable to requirements on the ground.
We also regularly support the work of :
- Secours Catholique, which fights against all forms of poverty and exclusion;
- Secours Populaire, a non-profit organization for national causes, which acts against poverty and exclusion in France and throughout the world;
