The Royal Moroccan Armed Forces (FAR) will deploy two field hospitals in two towns located in the provinces of Midelt and Azilal in central Morocco.
Rabat – According to a statement by the general staff of FAR, the field hospitals will be implemented at the request of King Mohammed VI.
The hospitals will provide help to the inhabitants of the two regions in order to combat the significant temperature decreases that have been forecasted across Morocco.
The statement added that the deployment operations will begin as early as Friday, November 23.
Earlier this month, the King also gave instructions to the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity to mobilize against the cold wave in central Morocco.
The first phase was launched on November 3 in the Midelt region. The initiative provided humanitarian assistance to regions affected by the cold weather.
The Foundation conducted a medical campaign in the town of Boumia, which is located in the Midelt province in the Drâa-Tafilalet region.
The campaign offered medical services, including general medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, maternal health, dentistry, ophthalmology, biology, radiology, and screening for physical disability in order to manufacture the appropriate equipment, according to the statement.
Launched in 2003, the Foundation has carried out a total of 894 campaigns, benefiting 1,066,608 people.
