Written by FDM

His Majesty King Mohammed VI proceeded, on Tuesday, April 06 in the old medina of Rabat, to the launch of the national operation “Ramadan 1443”, initiated by the Mohammed V Foundation for Solidarity in the wake of the holy month of Ramadan.

Mobilizing a budget of 103 million dirhams, the “Ramadan 1443” operation will benefit this year nearly 3 million people, established in 83 provinces and prefectures of the Kingdom and grouped in 600,000 households, of which 459,500 live in rural areas (77% of beneficiary families).

Organized with the financial support of the Ministry of the Interior and the Ministry of Endowments and Islamic Affairs, this national operation, which is in its 23rd edition, has become over time an annual event aimed at bringing help and comfort to the most vulnerable social categories, in particular widows, the elderly and people with disabilities.

The national food support operation has, since its launch in 1998, mobilized an overall budget of more than 1.5 billion dirhams, with the number of beneficiary families increasing from 34,100 in 1998 to 600,000 in 2020. The “Ramadan 1443” operation is thus added to the various humanitarian actions and initiatives undertaken by His Majesty King Mohammed VI with the aim of promoting a culture of solidarity and ensuring sustainable human development.
