HISTORY

Helga Heidrich, the founder and president of the Foundation, had started her fight for animals in distress back in Germany. When she visited Marrakesh in 1992, she was shocked about the total lack of animal protection. She decided to help immediately and rented an area of 2 ha, which she found in the countryside of Marrakesh, the Douar Tohana Commune Al Ouidane. She installed Water and electricity, built stables and enclosures and the Sanctuary was born.
