Build micro-electric plant in Morocco
Since November 1st, 2016 projects, whose organizations are not recognized as charitable efforts in Germany or Austria, can no longer collect donations on betterplace.org. Learn more about these changes
Lost in a remote valley of the Hight Atlas Mountains, in Morocco, 15000 people, of berber origins, gathered in 30 villages, are far from everything. It takes 5 to 6 hours, using mules and donkeys, to reach the first villages from the nearest road. Therefore, it is impossible, in case of medical emergency (particularly when there is a difficult pregnancy), to reach a proper dispensary. The mortality rate for babies and young children is dramatically high, and the need for a local dispensary is urgent, especially now that the country is facing tremendous climate changes (with lack of water in some valleys). However, a dispensary with modern equipment cannot exist without electricity. Money has been raised already for the dispensary but we need help to finance the building of a micro-electric plant producing 27 KW, using a waterfall running all year long.
