We are very pleased to announce the election of Sarah Latrous as a new member of the Foundation Board. Knowing her mother Lotti’s project from a young age, Sarah first made her way into the International Hospitality Industry, then in Marketing and Events for medical organizations and charities. Today she lives in London working as an Events Manager at the University of Chicago Booth.
Sarah regularly travels to Côte d'Ivoire and has always been close to Centres l'Espoir and all of its residents and staff - especially the children with whom she grew up and spent most of her summer school time. She will support the fate of the Foundation with all her heart and will be able to transmit the spirit of the Centres L’Espoir to all of us.
Lotti Latrous Foundation, November 2019
Lotti Latrous chose a remarkable way: She gave up her privileged life in order the help the poorest among the poor: The people in the slums of Adjouffou in the Ivory Coast. She independently built a hospital, an ambulatory and an orphange. Thus she saved thousands of life.
She received several awards for her humanitary committment.
Time slips through my fingers. It's always been like that, but for a few years now this impression has increased. In the past, everything was always doable, but lately I've been increasingly feeling like I'm getting nowhere. I'm sure it has to do with the years I've lived. I've been married to Aziz for fifty-one years now, we've raised three children, had three grandchildren, and meanwhile we've been realising our project: The Centre of Hope. Yes, a lot has come together. I don't want to miss any of it.
