Jointly financed by the European Union (EU) and Terre des hommes, the “Tamkine-Migrants” project principally aims at improving access to healthcare and educational services and for justice for migrant women and children from the Sub-Sahara. In Morocco, the project is carried out with the Associations « Medecins du Monde » Belgium, the Moroccan Association for Solidarity and Development (AMSED) and the Association for Fight against AIDS (ALCS), in partnership with the Ministry of Health, National Mutual Aid. The objective of the project is to improve medical, social and psychological care of at least 1,500 highly vulnerable migrant women, especially pregnant migrant women, women with a baby or victims of violence. It also expects to strengthen the capacity of targeted public institutions and civil society to assist such migrant women.
Between May 2017 and April 2018, 1274 women (in particular pregnant women, with a baby or victim of violence) have benefitted from an integrated and adapted support, in the two cities of intervention of the project: Rabat and Oujda.
