Photographic exhibition to support Fez orphanage

The exhibition Fez through your eyes opens at 18h00 on Thursday 2 June at the offices of Fez Real Estate on Talaa Sghira, just down from Palais Mnebhi and the Banque Populaire.

Organised by Fred Sola, the exhibition aims to contribute to the operation of Centre Amal, the orphanage at Hospital Ghassani in Fes. The photographs on display been taken by people from around the world who have visited Fes. These individuals generously offered to contribute by submitting their best shots.

All proceeds from the sale of these photographs will go towards purchasing basic necessities such as milk and medicine at the orphanage. Known as the Centre Amal and run by Mr Lamrani, it currently cares for about one hundred children between 0 and 3 years old, all waiting to find a family.

The centre employs 40 people. It was renovated in 2007 by the Foundation Mohamed VI and various private donors. It is a model of good management and the children there are extremely well cared for. Nevertheless the needs are constant and the goal of this permanent exhibition is to make a modest contribution towards supporting the continuing good work of this centre.

The exhibition will run indefinitely from 09h00 to 18h00 daily. For any additional information, contact Frederic Sola at solafred@gmail.com.
