Since 2002, Opération Enfant Soleil has managed the Fonds Marie-Soleil Tougas, which is dedicated to promoting social health. The Fonds Marie-Soleil Tougas aims to support projects to help young people living in socially vulnerable situations.
This fund was created in memory of Marie-Soleil Tougas, who died in 1997. She was an extraordinary ambassador for Opération Enfant Soleil and her generosity and efforts on behalf of sick children have touched the heart of Quebeckers.
Here are some projects made possible thanks to Opération Enfant Soleil’s Fonds Marie-Soleil Tougas:
Creation of an outreach centre for child abuse victims
Acquisition of furniture for rooms in a therapy centre for teens with drug abuse problems
