Vatel supports the Malginf humanitarian project

The same international spirit that students have Vatel and 4 students in nursing undertake a humanitarian project in Madagascar.

Return

Think about four friends, all students in nursing at the Saint Joseph St Luc IFSI in Lyon who decide to turn their 5-week internship from February to March 2017 into a true humanitarian project on the other side of the world.

This idea materialized little by little with the choice of Madagascar as a destination and the Saint Marie Hospital and the Zazakely orphanage for their missions.  The willingness and energy were there. However, they still had to be able to fund this project, which linked both solidarity with a great learning experience.

Now, try to imagine a man, sitting in the Vatel Group President’s office, opening his paper and reading an article about these four young students. Alain Sebban, touched by this initiative as well as the destination, as he himself also opened a School in Madagascar, contacted the nursing students to tell them he’d support them.

Vatel Madagascar's students welcome the Malginfs.

In Zazakely.


The adventure

Lea, Elodie, Jeanne and Noemi left on February 5th in the morning and arrived that very evening in Antananarivo, where students and the educational team from Vatel Madagascar welcomed them. They left two days later for St. Marie Island, where they spent several weeks at the hospital before going to the Zazakely orphanage.

 

Who are these Malginfs?

Elodie

Jovial, frank and sincere, she has the gift of communicating her good humor to her patients as well as her colleagues.  As Elodie had already gone to Burkina Faso when she was studying to be a pharmacy technician, her goal is to learn how to use new health care techniques requiring less material resources.


Léa

Sweet, calm and available, Lea is the spitting image of the nurse everyone would like to have. Her goal in this adventure? Having privileged and deep relationships with each and every patient.


Noémi

Dynamic, curious and a dreamer, this pretty redhead with a fiery character only wants one thing: to feel useful during this entire adventure and to come back home with even more multiple skills.


Jeanne

Fearless, demanding and thorough, this nurse’s grand-daughter dreams of being a nurse in the armed forces and going on international missions. A complete change of scenery and cultural enrichment are the two elements she is hoping for in this adventure.
