The ?Maison de Vie? is a project very dear to Princess Stephanie's heart. It is intended to accommodate people suffering from HIV/AIDS so that they can recapture their faith in life.  The ?Maison de Vie" will offer a wide range of activities focusing on the individual including psychological support and group workshops.

Located in the town of Carpentras, the 1000m² ?Maison de Vie?

This will include a double dining hall, a multi-purpose room with capacity for 200 people, an infirmary and a laundry. 

The ?Maison de Vie? will be able to accommodate approximately 25 people and will be accessible to people with reduced mobility. Candidates for a stay will have their case examined by a committee made up of people from Fight Aids Monaco including doctors.

The aim of Fight Aids Monaco is to support AIDS sufferers and their families by providing both material and psychological assistance.
