Social Care Responsibility


Project description

Proving that ecotourism is a responsible development, Al Tarfa shoulders a leading role to upgrade the natives’ living standards and better protect their scarce natural resources. The lodge’s staff members are all from the nearby villages which works as a contribution to solve the problems of unemployment in those remote areas. In October 2009, Al Tarfa sponsored a medical convoy to Dakhla oasis with the cooperation cooperation of Ali el Mofti Society, a qualified team of eye doctors. They examined and treated 640 needy cases and completed 63 successful “major” eye surgeries in just three days.

This project contributes to the following Sustainable Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda
