Monaco Government Update 02 Aug

Monaco’s Handiplage-Audioplage, is celebrating 12 years of success in making a day at the beach accessible for everyone. The service, which is available for those with disabilities, reduced mobility or who are blind or partially sighted, is used hundreds of times each summer, thanks to  special equipment and the commitment of the four team members to help users. The service enables the blind and visually impaired to enjoy the sea in complete freedom and safety thanks to sound beacons indicating their position in the water. There are also Four “Tiralo” floating wheelchairs, and toilets, showers and a concrete ramp from the sea wall and specially adapted parking. Handiplage-Audioplage, is a partnership with the Government of Monaco and is open seven days a week on Larvotto Beach.

The 69th edition of the Red Cross Ball attracted more than 800 guests last week on Friday, including the actress Monica Bellucci, Tour de France winner and Monaco resident Christopher Froome, and founder of Solar Impulse, Bertrand Piccard. The star of the evening was HSH Princess Charlene, resplendent in a strapless silver dress, accompanied by Prince Albert. The Monaco Red Cross is a major donor, both in the region and worldwide, recently helping immigrants in Ventimiglia and victims of the earthquake in Nepal.
