Rural areas of Morocco: between challenges and hope- High Atlas Foundation- Yossef Ben-Meir

By Houmi Ahamed-Mikidache

Tuesday, September 12, three days after the national mourning decreed by the Kingdom of Morocco, radio Era Environnement spoke with Yossef Ben Meir, president of the High Atlas Foundation, on « Your Voice« , the podcast of experts. A few days after the massive earthquake hit rural areas, Yosef Ben Meir gives his perspective. The foundation has appealed to several donations for the implementation of its actions. Among its partners are Ecosia. A long time partner.

According to official sources, more than 2,900 people have died. This sociologist by training , 54, describes the situation in rural areas. He answers questions from Era Environnement radio about the current needs of rural communities, their future, the future of young people and orphans. For about 40 minutes, he talks about the challenges and opportunities of rural Morocco. He has been by their side for over 30 years. 80% of this population lives from agriculture, he says. Six days after the earthquake, many villages no longer have access to water and electricity. Without housing, they live in tents.

Living conditions are critical. The villagers lack everything. Life is not normally easy in rural Morocco. The average salary for these people is $150 a month, indicates Yossef Ben- Meir on Your Voice. But, according to him, there is hope. Everything is present in this country to help rural communities, only coordination and implementation are missing, he highlights on Your Voice .
