Over the weekend of 22nd - 24th November, Morocco was ravaged by storms, which severely hit Tijhza village in the Atlas Mountains, an area many Exodus travellers have visited over the years. Buildings have been ruined, damaged by falling rocks or washed away by the floods. People's crops, livelihoods and homes have been destroyed. We want to repay some of the kindness and generosity they have shown by sharing their home with us by helping them however we can.
In conjunction with our charity partner, Baraka Community Partnerships, and our local partner in Marrakech, we have already organised a delivery of emergency aid, which we hope will be delivered very soon. However, it is clear that the area will need further aid in the coming weeks and months. If you would like to contribute, we're sure that the people of Tijhza would greatly appreciate any support in helping to rebuild the community.
We will endeavour to keep you updated via our website, emails and social media as events unfold.
