"I say to you very solemnly this evening: this cathedral will be rebuilt by us all together. ... We will rebuild Notre Dame because that is what the French expect, because that is what our history deserves, because it is our destiny" - President Macron

April 15th 2019, the world watched in disbelief as the historic Notre Dame Cathedral burned and the roof fell in flames. Thanks to the relentless and courageous efforts of the Pompiers de Paris, the integrity of the structure was saved. 

As President Macron stated, the time for reconstruction and restoration has come and will require the efforts of the entire world to come together to fund this daunting project. Major French businesses have pledged millions of euros but more will be needed.
