The second phase of the “Salama” operation, aimed at supporting the elderly and disabled, was launched by the Ministry of Solidarity, Social Development, Equality and the Family, in order to protect this category from new Coronavirus (Covid-19).
This operation launched in partnership with the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), aims to provide social protection establishments in Rabat, Casablanca, Fez and Tangier with “Salama Kits” for hygiene and prevention of Covid-19. It is a measure aimed at preserving the health of this social category and providing the necessary care and basic support to meet their needs, as part of the fight against this new pandemic.
The launch will be accompanied by a wide dissemination of a series of awareness-raising advertisements concerning the elderly and disabled. The ministry recalled that this operation, launched at the beginning of April, in support of the measures taken by the Moroccan government to fight against the pandemic of Coronavirus, had given priority in its first phase to pregnant women and health professionals, in particular the midwives, noting that the next steps will target social groups at risk, such as abused women, migrants and prisoners, especially pregnant women, throughout the Kingdom.
