Why is it important?

While the holiday season is synonymous with family and social gatherings, it is quite a difficult time for those who are excluded, isolated, depressed or sick, painfully reminding them of their malaise.

More and more French people live alone

One French person in eight lives alone (versus one in 10 in 2010) and one in three is at risk of living alone (one in four in 2010).

One French person in 10 feels excluded, abandoned or useless.

Every year, the Fondation de France funds 1,000 projects to fight solitude.
