Emergency in the Sahel
Support the urgent needs of children in the Sahel affected by the food crisis  

Morocco

Morocco is a fast-growing country, but the number of children who do not have access to specialised healthcare remains high. Children suffering from certain complex cardiac pathologies still do not have the possibility of undergoing surgery locally. Our goal is to give these children a chance to be treated and to have the right to a real childhood.

Our projects in Morocco

Soins spécialisés

Due to a lack of resources, qualified doctors and infrastructure, some children with heart defects cannot be treated in Morocco. We help these seriously ill children to recover by transferring them to Europe and Switzerland for surgery. Tdh is the leader in medical evacuations in Europe and organises 40% of these transfers. During the pandemic, we were able to mobilise to support their families and offer care to the children waiting for their transfer.
