The Louisiana Consular Corps donates 5.000 dollars to LCMC Health and Ochsner Health [fr]
Last Tuesday, the Consul General of France Mr. Vincent Sciama, Dean of the Louisiana Consular Corps, made two donations of 2.500 dollars each on behalf of all Louisiana consuls to the two major hospital networks in the region, Ochsner Health, and LCMC Health.
Mr. Sciama, accompanied by Mr. Bret Clesi, Vice-Dean of the Louisiana Consular Corps and Honorary Consul of Albania, personally handed over the two checks to the CEO of LCMC Health, Mr. Greg Feirn, and to the CEO of Ochsner Health, Mr. Warner Thomas.
These donations were made in support and in recognition of hospital staff on the front lines in the fight against COVID-19.
The Louisiana Consular Corps works closely with the leading state, federal, regional, and local economic development organizations and government agencies to identify and foster trade and commercial opportunities and the exchange of goods and services between nations represented by the Consuls themselves and the city, state, and region.
