Under the Honorary Presidency of H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco

The Frankie's Children association has been working since 1997 for the well-being of sick, disabled, psychologically distressed or precarious children aged 1 to 18 in Monaco and France.

150,000 children benefited from funded activities and projects.

Elle grandit à Monaco grâce à Mme Francien Giraudi Présidente Fondatrice et bénévole, ainsi qu’au soutien important de la Famille Princière. Depuis le 10 Novembre 2023, l’association est placée sous la Présidence d’Honneur de S.A.S. le Prince Souverain.

Since 2008, the association has been granted consultative status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council.

LEDF works in collaboration with more than 200 organisations such as hospitals, social services, Hospices and Medico Educational Institutes.

Its main goal is to help children in difficulty to fulfil their potential. Every month, many children take part in outings and workshops organised by the Association in Monaco and the PACA region. On a day-to-day basis, the purchase of medical equipment, the refurbishment of orphanages and the distribution of second-hand goods all contribute to giving them significant support. Once a year, the association invites thousands of children to the " Noël de Frankie " (Frankie's Christmas) for a tailor-made show with the presence of the mascot clown " Frankie " and the distribution of Christmas presents and snacks for all.
