Terre Fraternite

Following the bombing of the detachment of Bouake (RCI) in November 2004, which left ten dead and 40 wounded, new needs have emerged to relieve the families and the wounded, needs to which the army general Bernard Thorette, head of state -Major Army (CEMAT) at that time wanted to answer.

Under his leadership was born in 2005 (declaration in the June 4th Olympics) the association Terre Fraternité (association type law 1901) which aims to support the wounded in service of the army, their family and the families of dead soldiers in use. In doing so, its statutes do not prohibit it from carrying out general mutual aid actions. Terre Fraternité lives by donations and does not receive any public subsidy which leaves it great autonomy.
