Les Berberes et Moi

A Story of Poverty and Suffering, Elation and Hope

 

It is more out of the ordinary than the ordinary. Life as it has been experienced, simply lived. This journal presents a fresh look at life in Morocco, gives you an insight as to how the Berbers live, what problems they face, their attitudes, what they know about us Europeans and what they think about us. This book is written by a young woman, who as a voluntary worker travelled to the Middle Atlas Mountains to help the Association Hannan, a charity that has been helping mainly children, but has also been generous to others in need.The instant discovery of such a different world, led me to want to prove to myself and perhaps others,who doubted that my mission would be successful, that Muslims can be open-minded, amiable, feel the need of love, and that they want more from us than money or a visa. My focus was on helping others. However, living with a Muslim family and having Muslim friends turned the whole experience into a simple but also complicated series of events which I had never anticipated to live through. Casualties of this five month experiment have vividly been portrayed in the book. Am I one of them? This journal aims to be funny, quirky, knowledgeable and authentic. Reach out for it and it is yours.
