BRAND NOTRE-DAME

Geschiedenis van de kathedraal Notre-Dame

April 18, 2019 - De Franse president Emmanuel Macron heeft beloofd de verwoeste Notre-Dame binnen vijf jaar te herbouwen, en in minder dan 48 uur sinds de brand uitbrak hebben magnaten, bedrijven en lokale overheden donaties toegezegd van totaal €900 miljoen. Andere beloften betreffen gratis vervoer, hout- en renovatiewerk.

The most substantial pledges made so far include €200 million from French billionaire businessman Bernard Arnault’s family and his LVMH luxury goods group, a further €200m from French luxury and cosmetics group L’Oreal, along with the Bettencourt Meyer family and the Bettencourt Schueller foundation.

A pledge of €100m from Francois Henri Pinault, who heads the Kering luxury goods company, and €100m from French oil company Total.

Donations from over 150,000 individuals around the world add a further €20m to the total, while the Hungarian cities of Szeged and Székesfehérvár have pledged €10,000 each towards the cathedral's restoration.
