In July 2017, teams from the Advans Group came together to donate funds to the French NGO Première Urgence Internationale. Première Urgence Internationale helps civilians who are marginalised or excluded as a result of natural disasters, war or economic collapse. The NGO is present in several of Advans operating countries, in Africa (Nigeria and DRC) and in Asia (Myanmar). Staff from Advans International were concerned about the critical humanitarian situations in these countries and therefore wanted to support the emergency missions of Première Urgence Internationale, which are complementary to Advans mission to foster private sector-led economic and social development in its countries of operation. During the month of July, Advans collected 4,500 Euros in donations from its staff, and Advans International matched this amount, with a total of 9,000 Euros donated to the NGO. Following this, in mid-October, a breakfast meeting was organised with Première Urgence Internationale and Advans staff so that the NGO could present its missions and the different stages of intervention, the activities carried out and the results achieved.
