On Friday April 26, members of the American Language Center's Community Service Club visited children in Ibn Al Khatib hospital in Fez, distributing soft toys and roses, as part of Global Youth Service Day
The ALC Community Service Club was the first group in Morocco to join what has become a huge movement, where young people show their caring for the community by initiating projects to help others.

During their two hour visit, ALC Club members also chatted with the children, their mothers and staff, who clearly appreciated the thoughtful gesture.
“I feel very good and satisfied making others smile,” said ALC student Zakia El Youbi. “When you make others happy, then you smile as well.”
