Morija Humanitarian Association

Clinique La Colline donated its operating room equipment to the Kaya Centre for the Disabled in 2009, at the instigation of Dr. Dominique Hügli, orthopedic surgeon. Since then, the clinic supports and supports its cooperation with the Morija association in different ways: financial, material, human support, a photo exhibition initiated in 2016 at the clinic and in partnership with the HES-SO Geneva.   

"The whole team brings exceptional energy to Kaya. Patients and their families place enormous trust in us. They often invest us with magical powers and sometimes hope for the impossible. My work is like a few drops of water lost in the middle of a river.
We are working to pass on our knowledge in order to ensure a succession. It's a long-term effort, the outcome is fragile but the stakes are worth it." Dr. D. Hügli
