Coeur des Gazelles (Heart of the Gazelle) Makes Positive Impact on Morocco

The Heart of Gazelles is a non-profit organization founded in 2001 dedicated to bettering the lives of the people of Morocco through access to clean water, education, orphanage support, job creation for women, and extensive medical services. The Moroccan government and Moroccan Ministry of Health support the organization and its admirable mission, and work with the non-profit to find the most remote areas in need.

The concept is simple - every year during the length of the Gazelle Rally, the Heart of Gazelles runs alongside the event providing much needed services and support to remote areas of the country. Amongst those services is an extensive medical caravan distributing medical equipment, providing medical consultations (over 20,000 to date), corrective glasses, labor assistance, and women’s health care support.

In addition to the medical caravan, the organization also provides orphanage support, and has dedicated monetary funds to assist local youth on the streets.

The Heart of Gazelles strong support of job creation for women has directly assisted with the building of a workshop where local women are able to earn a living and support themselves.  To find out more about the Heart of Gazelles and the work they do, log on to: www.rallyeaichadesgazelles.com
