In good times and bad, our J.MAK Hospitality . Personalities are there for a bit of help, or a laugh, when needed. Here's what a few of our J.MAKers are up to in Italy and how they're helping in Morocco.
Plus, a few more great fall offers. 


Our two Morocco partners - DMC Alizes Private and the new beachfront resort La Fiermontina Ocean (above), were both spared damage from Morocco's recent earthquake, and both are working to help those in need. Here's how you can help...

Morocco is Still Open 

Karim Fehry Fassy
, founder of Alizés Private our Marrakesh-based Morocco DMC, appeared on CNN and in The Washington Post following the earthquake.
Karim assures us that 98% of the country remains fully operational and  life is back but that Morocco still needs your support. 
A message from Karim: 

"We are your local advisors, and as such, our duty is to advise you on whether you can or cannot send travelers to Morocco. Today, the reality is that certain areas/quarters in the old medina of Marrakech are damaged, and unfortunately, many villages in the High Atlas Mountains have also been destroyed. However, it's important to note that 98% of the country remains fully operational, including airports, hotels, restaurants, museums, and gardens, to name a few. So, yes, travelers have nothing to worry about when traveling to Morocco today.

We kindly request your support by advising and reassuring your clients to continue traveling to Morocco and demonstrating your solidarity with a country that critically depends on tourism. We are witnessing an unprecedented wave of solidarity from the entire population, regardless of their economic status. People are flocking to supermarkets to purchase and distribute food, medicine, and essential supplies. Additionally, the government and civil organizations are providing exceptional assistance to those affected across the country."

Fundraising Through Orient Occident Foundation

Five-and-a-half hours from Marrakesh on the northwest coast, La Fiermontina Ocean was not affected by the earthquake but its owner, Yasmina Filali, who's also president and founder of the Fondation Orient-Occidents (pictured here speaking at the World Economic Forum) is helping to raise money for those affected by the earthquake through her foundation, the Orient-Occident Foundation.

The Foundation was established in 1994 to help young people from disadvantaged neighborhoods and to promote employability by setting up socio-educational and professional training structures. La Fiermontina Ocean itself is an example of a project that employs locals from the local community with little means of employment.
Donations can be made to the Orient-Occident Foundation here.
