A Devastating Earthquake Strikes Morocco
On September 8, Morocco was struck by a rare 6.8M earthquake, which was felt as far as Algeria and Portugal, rocking the historic city of Marrakech. With over 300,000 people affected, 2,000+ lives lost, and thousands injured, the toll only continues to climb, making this Morocco’s deadliest earthquake in decades.
Thousands of families have been displaced, mountains of rubble continue to prevent search and rescue efforts, and landslides have blocked off entire villages. The scale of this tragedy is alarming — but we are determined to make a difference.
Together, we can bring hope to Morocco.
