UN peacekeepers carry out a number of services in the communities in which they are deployed, including building roads and schools, offering job training and providing essential medical services. Doctors from the Moroccan contingent of MONUSCO are seen here in February 2005 treating refugees who fled their homes following fighting in Che, in Ituri province.
As of 30 April 2018, 43 Moroccans have made the ultimate sacrifice while serving with UN peace operations. Seen here is a funeral service held in Abidjan in September 2005 for Corporal Aziz Radi, a Moroccan peacekeeper with the UN Operation in Côte d'Ivoire (UNOCI), who died of wounds sustained in an attack by unidentified assailants in Bouake.

Moroccan peacekeepers with UNOCI unload provisions for people displaced by violence in Duékoué in March 2011. The area was plunged into crisis when fighting erupted between military forces loyal to former Ivorian President Laurent Gbagbo and supporters of the internationally-recognized new president, Alassane Ouattara.
