Speaking on the decision of the Board to hold the 4th edition of the event in Morocco, Ambassador Babalola Omoniyi, Founder and Project Coordinator of the event said “Morocco is a gateway to Africa, the Arab and the world at large. A meeting point for civilization, vibrant culture, and distinctive history with an ideal destination for cross cultural interchange and learning. For this purpose, we look forward to bringing 42 countries into Morocco for the 2018 edition of the Pan African Humanitarian Summits/Awards.
