Healthy Futures

After a frenzied day at the souk, we rushed home to prepare a gourmet lunch for our guests! Christina and her friend, along with Birgit, joined us for lunch on Saturday. After the meal, Christina (a trained nurse and healer) spoke to the girls with her excellent Arabic about the facts of life.

The discussion revolved around health, hygiene, taking care of your body and a small chat about what life is like as a woman. This was an excellent experience for the girls as these issues are not openly discussed in Morocco.

The girls thoroughly enjoyed hearing quality information from Christina, whose warmth and care made them feel safe.

Not only has this experience given them some tips for healthy living, but it has also opened the door to these conversations. It is a brilliant step forward for the girls.

Thank you Christina and Birgit!
