Amitié Sans Frontières Internationale is a non-governmental organisation to which consultative status has been granted by the United Nations Economic and Social Council. The organisation was founded on the three values of JUSTICE, TOLERANCE and FRIENDSHIP in order to contribute to peace. Each member is duty-bound to live their day-to-day life according to those values.
Placed under the Honorary Presidency of His Serene Highness Prince Albert II of Monaco, the association was founded in the Principality in 1991 by Madame Régine Vardon-West, its Founding Chair of Monegasque nationality.
The main aim of Amitié Sans Frontières Internationale is to support humanitarian initiatives on the theme that is defined and put forward each year by the General Assembly of the United Nations.
All funds raised on the occasion of the 3rd Monte-Carlo Fighting Masters will be channelled into the two projects for 2016 defined by the United Nations High Commission for Refugees:
1) Providing assistance to young Syrian children cooped up in refugee camps in Jordan;
2) Creating a Reception Centre on the island of Lampedusa (Italy) for migrants cast into the sea by gangster boats.
