The Community Health program launched with a series of four Health Awareness Days. The awareness days were attended by over 50 women and their children from each of the four villages of Amezray, Aguddim, Taghia, and Tighanimin. Included in the women were the region's traditional birth attendants (midwives), that will be learning more and more advanced skills through our continued workshops. They shared their concerns and ideas regarding their families' health as well as learned basic sanitation and hygiene practices for their homes and daily life. Atlas Cultural Foundation board member Leigh Taggert and Iqra Fund founder Genevieve Chabot led the days and taught general hygiene and sanitation practices. The day also included small group discussions in which the women had the opportunity to share their needs and desires for future awareness days. The small groups were led by a group of sixth grade girls from the Elementary School Tutoring Program. A big thank you to our local Moroccan partner Association Amezray SMNID for organizing these events.
