The Charity Show, the 29th edition of the traditional Christmas Show entirely created by students and professors of the International Option of the Charles III College, took place at the Rainier III Auditorium on Friday, January 20.

This high-quality show, which tells the story of the “Lion King”, allowed the college students and the teaching staff to demonstrate, once again, a real talent in staging and interpretation, and all who took part demonstrated an attachment to the human values of solidarity and generosity.

This year nearly €13,000 were raised and the funds will be entirely dedicated to a major cause, that of the Preventorium, Foyer Rainier III of Madagascar. Nearly 70 children suffering from rickets and malformation are cared for at this institution. After surgery, these children are offered care and rehabilitation before returning to their families.

The Principality contributes financially to the functioning of the Home and the funds collected by the pupils of the College Charles III during the Charity Show constitute two thirds of the total grant awarded.
