Moroccan beggars

Although there are many beggars in Morocco, not all are “authentic” because many of them, especially children, just ask to the tourists. The real beggars are mostly elderly and mothers with their kids and are often seen in the alleys of the cities, especially at night.

A pesar de que hay muchos mendigos en Marruecos, no todos son “autenticos”, pues muchos de ellos, especialmente los niños, solo piden a los turistas. Los mendigos reales suelen ser ancianos y mujeres acompañados de sus hijos y suelen verse en los callejones de las ciudades, especialmente de noche.

Tot i que hi ha molts captaires al Marroc, no tots són “autèntics”, ja que molts d’ells, especialment els nens, només demanen als turistes. Els captaires reals solen ser gent gran i dones acompanyades dels seus fills i solen veure’s als carrerons de les ciutats, especialment de nit.
