Many offered their help. We would like to inform you and through you as many colleagues as possible that a solidarity account has been opened by the Fondation de France to help the families of the victims. A special committee, chaired by the Directeur Général du C.N.R.S. will make sure that the money reaches the families as soon as posible and according their individual needs.
If you consider to send a check, please note that banking fees can be significant. This problem will be reduced if collective donations are made, e.g. at institute level. Checks should be sent to:
INSTITUT NATIONAL DES SCIENCES DE L'UNIVERS
SOUTIEN AUX VICTIMES DE L'ACCIDENT DE BURE
3, RUE MICHEL ANGE
75766 PARIS CEDEX 16
The checks must be filled out to the name of:
FONDATION DE FRANCE - BURE
Individual notes of receipt, which could be used for tax deduction purposes, will be sent back to the donators.
