La Bonne Etoile is a non-profit-making association governed by the law of 1901, created in July 2012. Helene Darroze and Laeticia Hallyday, chairpersons of the association, have a strong emotional bond with Vietnam. They quite naturally decided to take care of children and teenagers, many of whom are orphans, abandoned, or suffering from disease or physical handicap, firstly in Vietnam, and then to extend their help to the rest of the world. Through their actions, they wish to bring decent living conditions to these youngsters, by giving them access to healthcare, to education and professional training in a protective affective environment. It is for them that La Bonne Etoile builds schools, rehabilitates orphanages and participates in emergency food aid to orphanages and children’s hospitals.
