Some Palestinian children have been accorded royal reception as 700 of them participating in the 14th annual summer camps organised by the Bayt Mal Al-Quds Agency were hosted by Princess Lalla Hasnaa on Saturday.


Princess Hasnaa is a sister to the Moroccan monarch, King Mohammed VI. She hosted the children who were guests to the Bayt Mal Al-Quds Agency, a Moroccan agency dedicated to supporting the holy city of Quds — Jerusalem — and its people.

Under the care of 70 supervisors, the young people are given the opportunity to explore various regions of Morocco.

This year’s camp, named Marche Verte (Green March), ran from August 10, to the 26, and was open to Maqdessi children aged 11 to 14, both girls and boys, who were accompanied by supervisors from Al-Quds. The program aims to offer the young participants an enriching and educational experience during their summer break.

In her reception of the Palestinian children, Princess Lalla Hasnaa took a group picture with the Maqdessi children and their supervisors.

In 2023, Bayt Mal Al-Quds Acharif Agency pledged $3.4 million in investments  to the city.

The investment budget is set to go to different social projects, extending to projects for sustainable development, health, education and reconstruction, trade, agriculture, cultural and artistic animation, media, sports, and youth.

Under the agency’s social support projects, priority was given to the Maqdisi people helping them overcome the impacts of the Covid-19 pandemic and the rising prices due to the global economic crisis.
