Charles Louis Gustave Bouveret

He was born in 1878 and came from Paris to Mogador in June 1913. He stayed and worked as a doctor until he died 1948. He became a symbol - a saint helping the poor as the rich, Muslims and Jews. During 35 year he founded 2 hospitals, a clinic anti tuberculosis, a medical service for sailors and more.


Dr Bouveret

"This is the turning point in the history of medicine in that city because the doctor by his competence, dedication, enthusiasm and availability, has gained the commitment of the local population and area. His work was facilitated in part by advances in medical science, and secondly by the caids of the region.

Bouveret clinic

The clinic Mogador has become the civil hospital and later a Hospital Group consisting of several units: Hospitalized patients separate Muslims, Jews and Europeans, with lodging and food adapted to their habits, and places of worship respectively. Initially, funding was provided by appealing to the feelings of solidarity among elites and populations according to their ability."
