Larache, Morocco -- Expedition Xauish

A group of Madrid students from the Amura Club—a corporate work of Opus Dei for the formation of boys—has dedicated a few weeks of December to collecting new and recycled toys. Their destination was a “soup kitchen” for poor children run by a Franciscan community in the Moroccan city of Larache. There meals are provided each day for 130 children under five years of age, many of whom have never had a toy.

The students from Madrid crossed the Straits of Gibraltar on a ferry with two vans carrying the toys, called “xauish” in the local language. The volunteers also helped out in the dining room and were brought up to date on the most pressing needs of the center in order to prepare for next year’s expedition.
