He said “In view of the current circumstances and conditions and difficulties we are facing, I am very impressed with the participation of all stakeholders and their participation. Our solidarity, we want to share with all our contributions to the less privileged. Each Bollore staff worldwide is contributing 5 Euros and all will be sent to a global fund account which will be transfer to any charitable organization.”
