We are excited to share with you that our home in Oujda, Morocco is getting closer to completion.
A few weeks ago, our volunteer Meriem Amghari, who was on vacation in Rabat, kindly agreed to visit and see the construction progress. Below is her account.
“Our opportunity to visit “The House of Light” was preceded by much anticipation. My husband, four children and I embarked on a 500 km journey to Oujda during an arduous heat wave for the privilege of visiting the orphanage’s construction site. The local team greeted us with heartfelt warmth and hospitality. The lead architect graciously provided an in-depth tour describing all efforts being invested towards the completion of this blessed project.
As I visited the building, it became evident that each step of the planning was done with a genuine intention to offer the best environment for GiveLight’s children. The attentive elaboration of the living spaces emanated a devotion to providing a privileged setting that will nurture the girls on a physical, emotional and spiritual level. A home built with such sincerity will undoubtedly become a source of hope for some of the most vulnerable children in the region. GiveLight has planted a seed of hope in the hearts of countless children around the world. Let us join hands in making this a reality for the orphans of Oujda!”
