The donation of April 2023 goes to:
The Jérôme Lejeune Foundation, which was given public interest status in 1996, has been working for individuals affected by genetic intelligence disorders (Down syndrome, Williams-Beuren syndrome, fragile X syndrome, “cri du chat” syndrome, other trisomies, monosomies and unexplained intellectual disability…)
At the service of affected individuals and their families, the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation is driven by three objectives:
It implements and supports research programs designed to develop treatments for Down syndrome (trisomy 21) and other intellectual disabilities of genetic origin.
The Jérôme Lejeune Foundation, France’s number one funder for research in genetic intelligence disorders, develops and funds programs in France and abroad.
It created and funded the Jérôme Lejeune Institute, a centre for specialized medical and paramedical consultations; it defends life and patients’ dignity.
