A Moroccan widow has turned her home in the capital Rabat into a shelter for cancer patients, after realizing how many people were forced to abandon outpatient treatment because of the expense of reaching the city and finding lodgings.
Khadija Ayad al-Qorti, 72, founded the Jannat Association in 2009, a few months after her husband died of cancer. The association provides free accommodation for patients and their families, free transport to Rabat’s oncology center and free meals for the duration of their stay.
She cares for 15 women in her home, and rents a flat nearby to house a further 15.
