Multimedia for the disabled
Creation of a video editing room to train disabled people in multimedia use



Sponsors: DV Construction

The aim of the Percy Hedley Foundation is to promote the rights and aspirations of disabled people. For five years now, Bouygues Travaux Publics and the Concessions Unit have been supporting the foundation by taking part in organising a wheelchair race in Newcastle’s Tyne Tunnel which the Group built.
Terre Plurielle funding will make it possible to create a video editing room suitable for disabled people to edit films. This project trains seriously disabled people to use new softwares and fosters their occupational insertion.

Combatting Spinal Muscular Atrophy
Financing medical equipment for patients’ families



Sponsors: Dragages Hong Kong

SMA Charitable Trust provides financial help for patients suffering from spinal muscular atrophy as well as support for families. This rare neuromuscular disease causes degeneration of motoneurones in the spinal cord which no longer convey orders for movement to the muscles.
Terre Plurielle’s contribution will help finance medical equipment which will be loaned to families so that they can carry out home-based care.
