Impact and Results

* Martinique (Martinique Matinik Creole or Matnik), also known as "the island of flowers", is a French island region located in the Caribbean more precisely in the archipelago of the Lesser Antilles. Covering an area of ​​1128m2, it has approximately 383,911 inhabitants as of January 1, 2014.
In the 2030 horizon, according to figures from INSEE (National Institute of Statistics and Economic Studies)
The population is aging more strongly than elsewhere in France. By 2030, nearly 40% of the population in Martinique will be over 60 years old.
In this aging situation, Martinique is undoubtedly heading for a constant increase in the rate of elderly people with reduced mobility, thus motorized to overcome a situation of disability.
Through this approach, Humanity For The World (HFTW) anticipates by proposing a sustainable solution for recycling resources (medical / paramedical equipment) on the Martinique territory.
