The disadvantaged population in rural areas suffers the lack of medical supervision. To promote their access to Healthcare, Saham Foundation has been organizing medical caravans since 2013: medical teams reinforced by Saham Group volunteers to reach the neediest population in the most isolated areas across Morocco (Seksaoua, Boudnib, Tata, Ait Tamlil ...) and sub-Saharan Africa (Pete in Senegal, Lambaréné in Gabon ...).
Since 2013, the Foundation has conducted 16 Solidarity Days in Morocco. More than 25,000 consultations were provided by a multidisciplinary medical team (gynecologists, cardiologists, ophthalmologists, opticians, pediatricians, dentists ...). More than 8,000 children and adults have been sensitized on oral hygiene, and more than 80 children have taken first aid courses. Glasses, hearing aids, medicines and donated clothes were given to patients and local authorities in the visited regions.
