mdm prize

Since 1998, the council of the MDM Foundation awards the Hublot prize to the person who has distinguished him/herself in an exceptional way in aid for the neediest children.

In May 2008, The Hublot Watches Corporates is sold to the Louis Vuitton Moet Chandon (LVMH), which notes the moral support of the Foundation MDM.

In 2008, ten years after its creation, the Hublot Prize became the MDM prize; the new award was first bestowed on Tim Aline Rebenaud, director and founder of Maison Chance in Ho Chi Min, Vietnam.

Unfortunately, the LVMH (although he has not ruled to keep it in the future)has so far not delivered on its commitment to continue to help the projects of our Foundation, which has led to the suspension of the annual price MDM.

2004 Gregoire
The traditional concept of mental illness in Africa is that the person suffering from a mental disorder is possessed or is the victim of witchcraft, and a cure consists of making the witchcraft harmless by locking the affected persons in shackles or chains and abandoning them on the street. Gregoire tackles the problem in another way, freeing these sick people, taking them to a center, rehabilitating them in a work place and, finally, re-accompanying them, mostly healed, to their village.
