The partnership aims at improving the quality of life of children with no families and to support single mothers.
Rabat – The president of the Moroccan League for the Protection of Children (LMPE), Princess Lalla Zineb, presided over a joint partnership between Morocco’s National Railway Office (ONCF) and LMPE on May 30.
The event, which took place at the Lalla Meryem Center in Rabat, was attended by the Director General of ONCF, Mohamed Rabie Khlie, and the Deputy Secretary General of the Moroccan League for the Protection of Childhood, Thami Oulbacha.
The joint project aims primarily to promote the social and humanitarian work for underprivileged children residing at various LMPE centers across Morocco.
Under this agreement, the ONCF will create donation sites throughout Moroccan railway stations to raise money to be used for financial resources under the supervision of the Moroccan league for the protection of children’s rights.
This series of actions fall within the framework of the league’s 2019-2021 program which aims at sustaining the budget and allocating resources to the LMPE centers to be built and better equipped as well as improve the reintegration of children without families and those in vulnerable situations throughout the country.
Preceding the signing ceremony, the Director General of ONCF, Mohamed Rabie Khlie, paid a visit to the different Lalla Meryem centers and boarding houses. He was received by local officials who explained the challenges and various services provided to the residents of Lalla Meryem centers.
The ONCF joins a list of contributors financing the LMPE activities including but not limited to: Morocco’s Ministry of Economy and Finance (MEF), the National Mutual Aid (CDG), and the Cherifien Phosphates Office (OCP).
