Social Solidarity made in Morocco

share on :

Even though colonisation has cut Africa in two for the past twenty years, the attention of the Moroccans has been turned towards the South. The country has positioned itself against the global trend that saw Africa as a hopeless continent.  In these times of health crisis that has affected the world, Morocco has demonstrated the solidity of its relations with Africa by accompanying fifteen or so countries during the various phases of their management of the health crisis.   

8 million masks, 900,000 visors, 600,000 floats, 60,000 gowns, 30,000 litres of hydro-alcoholic gel, as well as 75,000 boxes of chloroquine and 15,000 boxes of Azithromycin transported by Morocco to some fifteen countries. This beautiful gesture of solidarity of the kingdom towards the other countries of its continent has been welcomed by a large number of African Heads of State.

Burkina Faso, Cameroon, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Democratic Republic of Congo, Eswatini, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Malawi, Mauritania, Niger, Senegal, Tanzania and Zambia have been granted aid following an initiative by the Moroccan sovereign, King Mohammed VI, to support them in their efforts to fight the spread of the virus. 

The Moroccan news agency, the Maghreb Arab Press, UN ambassadors and many African heads of state have expressed their countries' thanks and gratitude for this "highly commendable humanitarian gesture".

As we are in a time of economic downturn, we hope that the Moroccan initiative will inspire other countries around the world, and contribute to solidifying relations and solidarity among African countries.
