Compagnie Monégasque de Banque (CMB) has taken the initiative, in agreement with the Princess Grace Hospital Centre (CHPG), to set up a vast system for collecting donations, so enabling the entire Monegasque community to participate in the drive for national solidarity.

The email address dedicated to centralising the promises of donations in favour of the CHPG is now active. It will enable everyone to see the information needed to take part in this initiative.

Through this initiative, CMB is strengthening its commitment to the fight against Covid-19 after having already granted the sum of 100,000 euros in favour of the Princess Grace Hospital Centre (CHPG).

This donation has contributed to the financing of protective equipment for medical and healthcare workers dedicated to the pandemic and is in addition to the 800 litres of hydroalcoholic gel and 11,000 masks delivered by CMB since the start of containment.

“More than ever, CMB is acting as a committed partner in support of those who are on the front line against this pandemic,” said Francesco Grosoli, CMB’s CEO, adding: “We only wish one thing: that everyone’s action is exemplary and in a spirit of solidarity. This is how we are participating in a concrete way in the establishment of the best conditions for a return to normal life as soon as possible”.

Benoîte de Sevelinges, Director of the CHPG, emphasises that “in this period that is as complicated as it is exceptional, the energy, know-how and unfailing determination of all the hospital professionals who enable the hospital to fulfil its mission are a great blessing”. She thanks “everyone” for their contribution.

CMB hopes to rally a large part of the Principality’s residents around this spirit of solidarity.

CMB, created in 1976, a subsidiary of Mediobanca Group, is the leading private bank in Monaco and employs 250 people. It had a consolidated balance sheet total of 5.2 billion euros at 31/12/2019.
