Last October 17th and 18th , 2017 three members of Rotaract Club Barcelona Condal (Rime Sbai, President, Maria Hitz, treasurer, and Rita Gimenez, DRR of 2202) worked together with members of two Rotaract clubs (Rotaract Club Ahl Fès and Rotaract Club ENCG-Fès) and the Rotary Club of the city of Fez.

The collaboration was for an ongoing project that brings together Rotaractors and Rotarians of the city. The Dar el Ouafae is an orphanage in the Moroccan city, which is home of 140 children from 3 to 17 years old.

The Rotaractors raised funds in Barcelona so they could paint the playground of the orphanage and, with the help of the Rotary club, donated 140 backpacks, 10 bicycles and contributed to buying helmets.

We are very enthusiastic about how close we became to the other Rotaractors. This was definitely just the start of a bigger project and a stronger relationship between both areas.
