ORPHANS OF CANCER

Children schooling program

Despite the advanced state of scientific research and efforts made in the field of prevention and coverage care, cancer is still mowing down thousands of lives every year throwing plenty of families into sorrow and numbing with grief.

Aware of this fact, the Lalla Salma Foundation had implemented the program “Orphans of Cancer” to lend a hand to the most destitute families and multiply chances of success for children. This program, which was launched in January 2014, is intended for the powerless families those with no source of income after the death of the father due to cancer in one of the public hospitals. The program grants schooling support for children until obtaining the baccalaureate. One year after the starting up of the program, 154 children have already been able to enjoy many advantages. Many families are expected to be included every year into the program depending on the demand and on our financial capacities.
