Rabat – A young teacher in Sidi Bennour, a city 166 kilometers away from Casablanca, presented her students with a gift of warm socks and rain boots to help them endure the cold snap.
The cold weather took the kingdom by literal storms as temperatures have sharply dropped throughout the country in the last few weeks. Some regions have been especially harmed by these weather conditions as snow isolated them in hazardous circumstances.
King Mohammed VI has mobilized the government and instructed it to redouble its efforts to come to the rescue those in need. Last week, about 1,100 families in douars in Ifrane have benefited from food aid and blanket distributions.
While temperatures drop and government help pour in, some individuals chose to take matters into their own hands and help those around them to soften the harshness of the cold weather.
One example is a young teacher who offered her students a gift of warm socks and rain boots in the AL-Ziyaniya school in Sid Bennour city, which is located in the Casablanca-Settat region. According to the pictures shared on social media, the teacher placed the gifts on the students’ desks before the class started in order to surprise them.
This present, although it might seem small, offers a glimmer of warmth in conditions that have caused around 900 schools to temporarily close their doors.
