Share Your Joy This Christmas!

The most wonderful time of the year is drawing near and it is the perfect time to bring joy and show love to people around us.

I am Didier Zephir and together with a group of young volunteers (I love my city), we are trying with what we can to support the wonderful people of Coteau Raffin. Over the past 2 years, we have been regularly visiting and supporting around 15 – 20 families by visiting them, counseling, and helping in ways we could.

Where is it?

Cotteau Raffin is situated in Africa, Mauritius, its geographical coordinates are 20° 26' 2" South, 57° 20' 43" East and its original name (with diacritics) is Coteau Raffin.

The economic history of this region as for the rest of Mauritius is intimately linked to the history of slavery and indenture. It is on both these labour systems the economic prosperity of the island depended, in particular, the availability of cheap, plentiful, and docile labour. Today the main activities of the people of Coteau-Raffin are mainly based on fishing.

The squatters in Coteau-Raffin live in deplorable conditions. Without electricity and without water, these are families to whom life is not an easy thing to do.
Over 50+ families squatting on state land at Coteau Raffin are arming themselves with patience in order to see their situation regularized. They are installed on wasteland, accessible only by a dirt road located at the end of the asphalt road. Some of them have lived here for decades. They erected their houses from sheets of tin and wood.

What we will be doing this Christmas 2021?

However, for many families, the joy of the season can be overshadowed by the personal struggles they may be facing.
This Christmas we want to go the extra mile and share our joy with all these families with a Christmas dinner pack containing the following:

1 Roasted Chicken, 2 French Baguettes, soft drinks, salad, chips, and 1 ice cream.
Together, let’s spread Christmas cheer and make a difference.


"When you look at a city, it's like reading the hopes, aspirations, and pride of everyone who built it." Hugh Newell Jacobsen

Together hand in hand for a better tomorrow.
