The Belgian organization Bouworde has canceled its volunteering projects in Morocco, based on the advice of the Belgian Embassy in Rabat.

Moroccan media shared videos and photos of a group of young Belgian volunteers from Bouworde building a road in the remote village of Adar. The initiative earned praise for the girls from people across Morocco. However, the girls’ attire, short shorts, also attracted strong criticism.
