The Medical Caravan

For the past 6 years, TOTAL and Heart of Gazelles have been organizing an annual Medical Caravan during the Rallye Aïcha des Gazelles: a travelling clinic at the disposition of the local populations of southern Morocco. Every year, close to 5000 people await the visit of the Medical Caravan.

Thanks to the partnership and committment of the Moroccan Ministry of Health, the Moroccan Ministry for Family, Solidarity and Social Development, and the Moroccan Mutual Aid Office, our team works closely in the field with local doctors and nurses.

Complementary actions in 2009

This year, our sponsor TOTAL is donating a power generator that will allow us to improve the health services we offer.


Diagnosis and correction vision


Thanks to two autorefractors powered by the generator, the optometrists will be able to diagnose vision problems. The patient will then be given a pair of clip-on glasses - an immediate and perfect vision correction.


In the villages we visit, we will be able to:

- distribute health booklets to women and children.

- distribute brochures from the Ministry of Health during our information sessions on contraception.
