A chance encounter with a ten year old nomad in the Ighil M’goun mountains, whose family needed so much, inspired Ismail to reach to the swiss solidarity association and start sustainable tourism initiatives to support the families in the region by bringing supplies of food and seasonal clothing at every opportunity. So Ismail reached out to the swiss solidarity NGO’s to raise awareness of the plight of these people often destitute due to economic and environmental circumstances. He established an awareness raising connection with Support Flow To Morocco, who bring much needed supply to the people of the region. A testament to Ismail and his team, which embodies the philosophy of the Moroccan people. To love and care for all, but especially those in need. 

Ismail says: 

In the heart of Morocco lies the majestic High Atlas Mountains, a paradise for adventurers and nature enthusiasts. Little did I know that my hiking expedition in this breathtaking landscape would lead me on a transformative journey, not just through the stunning scenery, but also through the discovery of the warmth and kindness of the nomadic communities that call these mountains and the Sahara Desert their home. This blog narrates my encounter with these resilient nomads in need and how it inspired me to begin Sustainable Tourism Initiatives through the Swiss solidarity association Support Flow to Morocco

Atlas Mountains:

The High Atlas Mountains welcomed me with snow-capped peaks, lush valleys, and picturesque trails. As I trekked through the rugged terrain, I encountered friendly Berber villagers who offered me hospitality and a glimpse into their traditional way of life. I was in awe of their simplicity and contentment, despite the challenges they faced, particularly during the harsh winter months. As my hike took me deeper into the mountains. Fate led me to cross paths with a group of nomads struggling to survive the winter’s biting cold. Their tents provided little shelter, and they lacked proper clothing to withstand the freezing temperatures. Touched by their plight, I felt compelled to help in any way I could. 

Reaching To Support Flow To Morocco:

Upon returning from my hiking expedition, I decided to take action. I reached out to the Swiss solidarity association “Support Flow to Morocco,” known for its philanthropic efforts in the region. Their vision aligned perfectly with my desire to assist the nomadic communities in the Sahara Desert and High Atlas Mountains. Support Flow to Morocco, began organizing a charity drive to collect used winter clothes, blankets, and school materials. The response was overwhelming, with friends, family, and even strangers generously donating to the cause. It was heartwarming to see the spirit of compassion and solidarity spreading. Loaded with boxes of donated items, my team and I.  

Sahara Desert:

Together, we navigated the challenging terrain to reach the nomadic communities in the Sahara Desert and the High Atlas Mountains. The smiles on their faces as we distributed the much-needed supplies made every effort worthwhile.  

Witnessing the impact of Sustainable Tourism Initiatives was a humbling experience. The simple act of providing winter clothes and school materials brought joy and relief to these communities. Moreover, it strengthened their belief in the goodness of humanity and fostered a sense of hope for a brighter future. What started as a hiking adventure in the High Atlas Mountains became a life-changing journey of compassion and empathy. Meeting the nomads in need opened my eyes to the power of collective efforts in making a difference. Through the support of Support Flow to Morocco. We were able to extend a helping hand and bring some comfort to the lives of those living in the remotest corners of Morocco.  

As I bid farewell to these beautiful landscapes and the people who touched my heart. I promised to continue this charitable mission and inspire others to join in spreading love and kindness to those in need.
