Last Friday, ConsuI General Alexis Andres took part in the CMA-CGM's "Giving Across America" initiative to donate 10,000 turkeys and thousands of meals to families across the US.
2,000 turkeys were donated on that day to help feed families in the Greater Houston Area.

In January 2016, Alexis Andres had the honor of meeting the late Jacques Saadé, founder of CMA-CGM and his son Rodolphe in their headquarters in Marseille when they told him how much they cared about giving back and helping communities around the world.

The consul general was happy and proud to join CEVA Logistics and CMA-CGM for this event and to witness their generosity in action.

Together, we can make a difference! #35kmealsforAmericans #cmacgm #cevalogistics #thanksgiving

Lettre du Consul général de France à Houston à la communauté française

Madame, Monsieur, chers compatriotes,

A l’approche de la semaine de Thanksgiving, je souhaite vous communiquer plusieurs éléments d’actualité sur notre circonscription.

Force est de constater que la situation sanitaire se dégrade sur tout le territoire américain et que les Etats de la circonscription continuent de connaître une forte circulation du virus. Au Texas, les indicateurs se détériorent nettement depuis plusieurs semaines, notamment dans les régions d’El Paso, Lubbock ou Dallas-Fort Worth et plus récemment à Houston. Je veux notamment avoir une pensée particulière pour nos compatriotes à El Paso, ville qui connaît aujourd’hui une situation sanitaire et hospitalière dramatique. L’épidémie est aussi présente sur l’ensemble du territoire de l’Arkansas et de l’Oklahoma. Mon premier message est donc un message de prudence. Pour vous protéger et protéger votre entourage, veillez à respecter les règles de distanciation physique, à porter un masque, et à respecter la réglementation fixée par vos autorités locales. Il reste recommandé de rester à l’écart de tout rassemblement, particulièrement pour les fêtes de Thanksgiving.

French President and military leader Charles de Gaulle passed away 50 years ago today.

A liberator of France in one of its darkest hours 🕯, the world honors his life today and the belief that he held in the future of the 🇫🇷 Republic. His vision for France still lives through its current government 📜 that he helped found, and many admire his ability to strengthen and unite his compatriots under a common hope.

Below is his portrait bust on display here at the embassy.

Le terrorisme a de nouveau endeuillé la ville de Nice, ville jumelle de Houston, le 29 octobre 2020; une ville déjà attaquée par deux fois le 3 février 2015 et le 14 juillet 2016.

Nous avons rendu hommage aujourd’hui à trois nouvelles victimes du terrorisme islamiste:

- Nadine Devillers
- Simone Barreto-Silva
- Vincent Loquès

Cet hommage a été suivi d’une minute de silence en présence des équipes du consulat général de France, d’un conseiller des français de l'étranger, du Père Ted de la Paroisse francophone, des représentants de la ville de Houston, de l’Office of Foreign Missions et du comité de jumelage Houston-Nice.

Attentat de #Nice - Le président de la République s'est exprimé devant la basilique Notre Dame et a dénoncé une attaque terroriste islamiste en rappelant que "La Nation toute entière se tient auprès de nos concitoyens catholiques".

"Si nous sommes attaqués, c'est pour notre liberté. "En France il n'y a qu'une communauté, c'est la communauté nationale. (...) Nous devons dans ces moments nous unir et ne rien céder à l'esprit de division."

Toutes nos pensées vont aux victimes et à la ville de Nice, ville jumelle de Houston de nouveau frappée par le terrorisme. #jesuisnice 🇫🇷
