Hyundai returns to the children's desert

After more than two years without being able to celebrate El Desierto de los Niños due to the Covid-19 pandemic, it returns to Morocco, this time in August. In this sixteenth edition it does so with the participation of 25 vehicles and around 90 people. Hyundai Motor, as the main sponsor, once again joins this solidarity adventure in the Children’s Desert.

Leading this caravan will once again be the organization’s Hyundais, joined on this occasion by the new Staria minivan, which makes its debut at the event . Minivans still have several features that make them unique and in high demand among large and active families. This model is available in configurations of 7 and 9 seats and in two variants: Tecno and Style; the latter takes mobility to a higher level thanks to a series of enhanced functions and exclusive finishes for a more luxurious finish.

In addition to the Staria, several units from Santa Fe and the popular Tucson will travel to Morocco, as well as a unit from Kona. One of the Staria units will be in charge of transporting the opticians of the Alain Afflelou Foundation. All Hyundai will be equipped with mixed tires from the Korean manufacturer Hankook, more suitable than the original road tires for transit through the desert, where the cars will have to overcome dusty roads, dunes, rocky tracks or areas with the dreaded fesh-fesh.

In the words of Eva Ivars , vice president of the Alain Afflelou Foundation, “we started collaborating with El Desierto de los Niños 10 years ago. During this decade, our mission in this solidarity caravan has been of great relevance since, in this area of the On the planet, where there is high exposure to the sun’s rays, vision problems are quite frequent, in addition to the scarcity of resources of these populations, who have very difficult access to this type of check-up, much less to acquire glasses. prescription glasses or sunglasses. Therefore, with the check-ups that the Afflelou opticians will carry out and the delivery of glasses, we will contribute to eliminating the visual barriers of the inhabitants of those places and we will improve their quality of life”.

For Leopoldo Satrustegui , CEO of Hyundai, “supporting this charitable adventure from the beginning demonstrates the commitment we have at Hyundai to give back to society what it has given us over all these years.” He also declared that “it also serves as a great test bench to demonstrate the great capacity of our vehicles when facing complicated situations and terrain”.

Among the solidarity projects of the 2022 edition, the inauguration of water wells carried out under the slogan ‘Water in the Desert’ stands out thanks to the collaboration of the Hyundai Motor Spain Dealership Network. Likewise, an action was also carried out for the acquisition of bicycles that will be used to facilitate the mobility of girls in the most deprived area of the Moroccan desert. At the same time, volunteers from the Alain Afflelou Foundation will travel with the El Desierto de los Ninos caravan to check the eyes of a large number of people. If the use of glasses is necessary for any of the people who have had a graduation, Alain Afflelou will manufacture them to be delivered in the months after the trip.
