The Moroccan-American Institute for neuroRehabilitation (MAIR), is an outpatient not-for-profit clinic specializing in neurorehabilitation services and related research. It is located in Marrakech city, Morocco (North Africa) and was founded by the American 501-C3 non-profit, The Zahra Charity (based in Salt Lake City, Utah, United States of America). We are proud that all aspect of MAIR services are inspired by and focused on the American model of neurorehabilitation. So, we believe every neurological condition can be treated and/or improved, when given adequate and comprehensive neurorehabilitation approach. Most importantly, MAIR treatments and therapies are specifically designed to meet each patient’s condition and goals.

It has grown from a clinic treating 2-6 patients per day to a nationally-renowned neurorehabilitation institution treating 20-25 patients per day with a growing waiting list due to space limitations.
