VoH foreign workers expelled from Morocco

Look closely at this image.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    

Go back, look at the faces. The emotions.                                                                                                                                                       

In the past four days over 30 people have been deported from Morocco, many of them have been given no reason for their expulsion. On Monday, March 8th, Moroccan authorities raided Village of Hope (VOH), a children’s home in Morocco. The authorities arrived during the school day, entered the classrooms and told the adopted children their parents are being told to leave the country for proselytizing. Thirty three children have just been abandoned again by the actions of the Moroccan state. Their foster mothers, fathers, sisters, and brothers, must now leave them in Morocco and return to their home countries.

When I heard this story I immediately felt a deep burden for these children. They are once again orphaned. These precious children have just watched their parents leave the county with no hope of returning. This is a horrible injustice and tragic beyond belief for the children who will be left alone and defenseless in a country that has virtually no child welfare system. The pain the families are experiencing is unimaginable.

I just called Secretary of State Hilary Clinton (202-647-4000 if you’d like to as well), who has obvious connections with the Moroccan government. Please feel free to share the link below to spread awareness and gain notice by the US government.

A public outcry has significant power.
