Enfants de la terre

Enfants de la Terre was founded in 1988 by Marie-Claire and Yannick Noah. This charity provides underprivileged children with an unforgettable holiday experience in so-called Maisons-Tendresse (Tenderness Homes). In this way, children with difficult family, social or medical backgrounds are given the opportunity to enjoy a care-free holiday and discover new horizons.

In addition, Enfants de la Terre also organizes holidays outside of the Maisons-Tendresse: at the seaside or in the mountains, both in France and abroad. Miles donated by Flying Blue members are used towards free airline tickets for these children.

Miles are also used to provide free airline tickets for children requiring extensive, specialised treatment in Parisian pediatric hospitals. In addition, Enfants de la Terre provides financial aid to the families of these children, covering parents´ travel and living expenses.

L'ENVOL for European children

L´ENVOL is a charity organisation which provides children suffering from a chronic illness the chance to spend a carefree holiday on the impressive Echouboulains Estate. During their stay in the château - located in 30 hectares of lush countryside – the children are under professional medical supervision. Your Miles donations help children who are sick to spend a holiday at Echouboulains.

Currently, we have enough Miles, so we kindly request you to donate your Miles to one of the other charities supported by Flying Blue. Thank you for your generosity.

The Foundation to Promote Medical Research on Multiple Sclerosis

Multiple sclerosis is an incurable neurological disease. Research is a beacon of hope for patients.

The Foundation to Promote Medical Research on Multiple Sclerosis (ARSEP) has the following two objectives:
- Finance national and/or international multiple sclerosis research.
- Inform the general public about scientific, medical and therapeutic discoveries.

The foundation contributes more than 1 million Euros every year towards research.

The ARSEP foundation has developed a sports label called Solidaires en Peloton.

The label is an efficient way for the foundation to help raise public awareness and funds during sporting events throughout France.

Your Miles will enable us to develop more projects in various regions and increase fundraising to support even more research. Thank you!
