State social distancing mandates were tough on Maison Chance, leading to fewer staff available to care for orphans and handicapped people. In addition, production in the organization's professional studios stalled as fewer orders were placed. As a result, the beneficiaries of Maison Chance were deprived of work and income for the two months of lockdown.
The financial contribution of the Artelia Foundation helped Maison Chance overcome the Covid-19 crisis. The Emergency Fund allowed the organization to provide stable wages to the people with disabilities who learn and work at Maison Chance.
