Rabat – King Mohammed VI launched, on Saturday in the Tarik I neighborhood in Fez, the food support operation “Ramadan 1438”, organized by the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan.
Organized with the support of the Ministries of Interior and Endowments and Islamic Affairs, this operation, which is now in its 18th year, is an annual event and an opportunity to help and bring comfort to the most vulnerable social segments, notably widows, the elderly and persons with disabilities.
It is in line with the humanitarian program led by the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity, with the aim of providing support to those who need it most, while promoting the culture of solidarity.
The “Ramadan 1438” operation, which mobilizes a budget of 55 million dirhams, will benefit nearly 2.4 million people representing 473,900 households, of which 403,000 live in rural areas.
The health infrastructure of the city of Fez will also be strengthened after the inauguration by the Sovereign in the Doukkarate neighborhood of a center of addictology, a project destined to provide health care to young people suffering from addictive behavior.
The center is part of a national program to combat addictive behaviors implemented, since 2010, on royal instructions by the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity, in partnership with the Ministries of Health and the Interior.
The program aims at protecting young people from the use of psychoactive substances, improving the quality of care for addicts, particularly drug users, providing access to care facilities, and encouraging the involvement of civil society and the social departments in the problems of addiction.
