Esmâani-اسمعني (only hospital, pending checking)

Esmâani offers moral and psychological support to patients through listening, discussion and entertainment (reading, board games, music …). Volunteers can participate in the physical well-being of the patient by walking or looking after their appearance (shaving, hairstyle …).

Sometimes, volunteers also help organize the patient’s daily life or accompany him in his administrative procedures. The association organizes occasional collections of clothes, blankets or toys for the poor and calls for the donation of blood during urgent needs.

Teams of volunteers support the sick and their families on a daily basis during their stay in the hospital. The association is active in the hospitals of Charles Nicolle, Bab Saadoun-Bashir Hamza, Salah Azaiz and Jendouba …

It is by simple gestures that the association tries to bring some warmth to the lonely people in the hospital.
