20 000 Vies: 20,000 lives

Everything started from an observation: 20,000 lives could be saved every year if people knew the emergency life-saving techniques.
That is why, in 2008, Claude Mariottini, interventional cardiologist and heart rhythm specialist, Philippe Soussi, lawyer and deputy mayor of the town of Nice and Ginette Rinaldi, wife of the actor Gérard Rinaldi, created this association.


The aims of 20 000 Vies are to:

  • Promote the use of defibrillators to heighten public awareness of life-saving actions
  • Participate in the financing of programs to fight sudden cardiac arrest
  • Organize trainings in emergency life-saving techniques in schools with children in the city of Nice
