Clara is the sponsor of Kiki, 9 years old, orphan of father and mother, he lives in the Aguégués, a lake town in south-eastern Benin made up of islands of alluvial accumulation where one can only access by canoe.
“It was during a fashion show that I first met Sophie, President of Hirondelle de l’Avenir France. We quickly became friends, and when she told me about her association and the sponsorship of orphaned children in Benin, I was immediately seduced by this idea. Sophie offered to support Kiki Noël, 7 years old at that time, who lost both her parents and lived in a village of the Aguégués. I decided to become the sponsor of this cute little boy and I had the chance to meet him in his village during a trip to Benin! It was an incredible encounter, very moving. I’m not sure he understood who I was or why I wanted to meet him, but that’s okay. I know that if this little boy has access today to medical care, to school and everything else he needs to live, I am one of those who have something to do with it.”
