Aide Universelle was founded after the first humanitarian aid transport to the location of the earth quake that hit Morocco in 2004. The NGO focused on humanitarian aid to two villages in the area. These villages are populated by people of Berber descent and so fall, for a large part, outside regular aid in Morocco. In France, the NGO focuses on collecting clothes, household necessities toys and school materials. Two trucks drove to Morocco in November 2005 on a voluntary base. The Marthe van Rijswijck Foundation covered travel expenses for these trucks.
