After visiting the Nordstad Lycée for "NOSL meets ZAK" on Saturday morning, Princess Alexandra also paid a visit to the École privée Fieldgen on Saturday night to attend the 60th anniversary of the Campagne pour les Lépreux (campaign against leprosy) as part of the Semaine Raoul Follereau. Follereau, a French journalist, philosopher, lawyer and writer, was the founder of the World Leprosy Day after meeting leprosy patients in North Africa, who were not only poverty-stricken, frightened and ill, but also people that had been made outcasts from their own society.
