Hello dear family
I'm in Morocco, doing bad.
The reason why I wanted to reach you out it's to let you know that I'm still here.
Hello dear family, happy holidays!
There is some good news, I'm happy to finally be able to contact you.
Hopefully, God keeps sending good ones.
We have been suffering a lot in this country, nobody comes to help us. Things aren't good, we can't sleep or have any work. We don't have food.
People here in Morocco don't want to see us.
Honestly, everything is bad over here.

Hi Mom, I just want to send you some news. I wish you a great holiday, health and prosperity. I'm doing ok, thank God.

There is no job
Even if you get one, Moroccans always ask for your papers.

Here in Morocco, it isn't good.
We ask for food to people, even though we are in a transition, we are exhausted. We can't sleep, and sometimes when we want to take a shower we have to pay.
Everything is hard in Morocco.
