“We’re building a street with stones and then we’ll put cement on top of that, so we can help this city to have better streets so that people can pass” one young Belgian girl, named Luna, said in a video.
“The population of the city is very kind, they are always friendly, and they always say hello,” she continued. “I really like it here and the experience has been amazing.”
Another volunteer in the same video, a 15-year-old named Alina, said that she was there to help “the people of Morocco.”
