Notre-Dame cathedral to be rebuilt

Donations are open to help support the rebuilding of Notre-Dame cathedral following the fire which devastated it on 15 April


The French Embassy has received many messages of solidarity following the fire at Notre-Dame cathedral.

We greatly appreciate the many messages of support that we have received. The cathedral is at the very heart of our capital, our country and our people.

Seeing our magnificent cathedral ablaze was a national and international tragedy. However, we now know that most of its structure, including its towers, is intact. The worst has been avoided, thanks to the relentless efforts and incredible bravery of the Paris fire brigade and French authorities.

The French government has vowed to rebuild Notre-Dame as soon as possible. The widespread national and international support that has been offered will be crucial in this task.

If you wish to make a donation to help rebuild Notre-Dame cathedral, the French government has selected four foundations that provide all the necessary guarantees of transparency and security:

French Heritage Foundation (Fondation du Patrimoine)
Fondation de France
National Monuments Centre of the French Ministry of Culture
Paris Foundation for the Future of French Heritage

All the funds raised will go towards restoration work on Notre-Dame cathedral.

We would like to express our gratitude for all the kind words and support we have received.
