Fez – In a communiqué obtained by Morocco World News, Al-Akhawayn University’s Rotaract Club announces the organization of its Circumcision Day which benefits 350 needy children in the region of Ifrane (60 km from fez).
The event takes place for the sixth consecutive year. The circumcision ritual will take place on Wednesday, May 01st, 2013 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the gymnasium of Al Akhawayn University.
Loyal to its tradition, the Rotaract Club of the University Al Akhawayn is involved in several areas of social work and community service. The club organizes humanitarian actions such as the distribution of wood heating, bicycles, clothes, blankets and medicines to the needy.
This year, 350 needy children will benefit from free circumcision. Once again, the event will benefit from the technical support of the Ofoq Association for Solidarity and Assistance which provides the Rotaract club with surgeons, physicians, nurses, and medical staff.
On May 1, 2012, 270 children, orphans and children from low-income families, benefited from the operation and were given gifts and traditional clothes for the occasion, as is custom in Morocco. Along the lines of the mission of Al Akhawayn University and its social responsibility, the mission of Al Akhawayn Rotaract Club is to foster leadership and responsible citizenship, encourage high ethical standards in business, and promote international understanding and peace.
On April 1, 2012, Al-Akhawayn Rotaract Club won the award for the best Rotaract Club in Morocco in recognition of the myriad of activities it organizes and actions it accomplishes.
