(TSX: AYA; OTCQX: AYASF) (“Aya” or the “Corporation”) is pleased to announce that it has completed its second mobile health clinic near its Zgounder Silver Mine in the Kingdom of Morocco. The clinic is part of the Corporation’s four-pronged community program and social impact strategy, a portion of which supports the local health and educational sectors.




  • Together with local authorities and private partners, help school-age children develop healthy eyesight through preventative care and treatment


  • Improved the outcomes of children with vision problems by co-organizing and co-funding a mobile eyecare clinic that provided prescription glasses and referrals
    • A two-day clinic was held to service two separate rural schools
    • A total of 400 children received eye tests
      • Some 100 children received prescription lenses and frames donated jointly by Aya, local associations, and the Health Ministry
      • Some 75 received specialist referrals
    • Established a database for routine follow-up by local authorities
    • One additional mobile health clinic is planned this year


“We are delighted with the successful roll-out of the mobile eyecare clinic, which promotes healthy communities by bringing essential healthcare services directly to developing children. The clinic, in combination with our recent renovation of three rural schools, will also serve to heighten children’s performance at school and provide a more enriching learning experience. We are grateful for our partnership with local authorities and private groups, which helped organize and launch this initiative,” said Benoit La Salle, President and CEO.  “We wish to thank our local community team for their continued hard work and execution to deliver social impact. Special thanks are due to our local doctors and nurses at site who continue to deliver front-line care to meet the community needs at this clinic.”
