Donate Zakat to Morocco Earthquake Emergency Appeal
Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Morocco as they confront the aftermath of one of the most devastating earthquakes in their history. The catastrophic 6.8-magnitude quake struck the High Atlas region on September 8th, 2023, just 70 kilometres from the historic city of Marrakech, Morocco. This seismic event, the largest in the country in over a century, struck at a depth of 18.5 kilometres, causing widespread panic and destruction and leaving countless families homeless, injured, and in despair. Aftershocks continue to rattle the region, further complicating rescue efforts and exacerbating the already dire situation. The current death toll stands at over 3000 and is expected to rise as the full extent of this disaster becomes clear.
Islamic Relief is mobilizing a rapid and comprehensive response to this disaster. In the coming hours and days, our dedicated teams will be on the ground, working with the local response teams to provide urgent food aid, shelter, and lifesaving essentials to affected communities. Our immediate priority is to conduct assessments to understand the specific needs of those who have suffered and to respond accordingly. We stand firmly committed to offering long-term support to the affected families and communities, bringing hope to those who have lost so much.
In this time of need, we call upon the generosity of our local donor community. Your support can make a world of difference. Every donation, regardless of the amount, enables us to reach more people, deliver essential aid, and provide hope to those grappling with the devastating consequences of this disaster. Let us stand with the people of Morocco as they face this unprecedented tragedy. Let us extend our hands in solidarity, contribute, support, and become beacons of hope in their hour of need. Your donation can help save lives and alleviate suffering during this critical time.
