Sought by an average of 200 persons daily, people from all walks of life will find support, guidance and compassion at the hand of its 5 full time staff. Round the clock, they seek to help, comfort, find solutions and accompany patients and their families along their long and devastating treatment journey: from the facilitation of admission, the answering of queries, finding room at the guesthouse, overseeing the transportation of patients to and from EL Tagamoa El Awal ,to extending moral and compassionate support at all times
