Morocco Earthquake Relief
Earthquake Relief Needed – On Friday, September 8, a magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck Morocco near Marrakech.
More than 300,000 people are affected and at least 2,490 were killed. Access to remote areas with the worst destruction—especially in mountain towns—remains difficult. This is the strongest earthquake to hit Morocco in over a century. Hundreds of thousands of people are struggling to contact loved ones and access immediate aid, including safe shelter, clean water, food, and medical assistance. The enormity of loss and grief is widespread as people navigate the aftermath of the quake—and any potential aftershocks.
The global Caritas community, including CRS, is supporting Caritas Rabat with meeting both urgent, lifesaving needs, as well as with long-term recovery. Priorities are likely to include:
- Emergency safe shelter.
- Clean water and hygiene supplies.
- Living supplies such as blankets and kitchen wares.
- Support for medical assistance and counseling.
- Plans for the support of longer-term recovery for homes, infrastructure, and livelihoods.
