We Need Your help
Help us work with Moroccan government and local association entities in Disaster Recovery for towns and villages impacted by the 6.8M earthquake that hit at the foothills of the High Atlas Mountains on September 8th at 6:11pm EST. With shockwaves measuring at least 6M about 100 miles north in Marrakech and 3.5M 550 miles north outside of the capital of Rabat.
Although the extent of this tragedy is still in its infancy, we have sent a rented van to the Azzeden Valley and coordinating with the Aguerda Association in the Agoundis Valley gathering more details on their needs.
As of now, the roads to the villages are cut off and supplies reach them by donkeys. Many are not staying in their weak homes and camping outside in the cold since the earthquake. The urgent need is for blankets and basic supplies such as food. We will continue to update this page and our social media account with information as it unfolds.
Thank you for your support,
President of Resilient Communities
Rubble filled some alleyways in Marrakesh, one of Morocco’s largest cities, but the highest death tolls so far have been reported in the small communities of the High Atlas mountains. Mud brick buildings common to the region have been demolished or left structurally unsafe, leaving many forced to camp outside their homes in the frigid and damp hillside climate.
Here is a Google map that includes all the population centers and villages with their names located within 50 kilometers of the earthquake epicenter, in addition to the boundaries of the regions of El Haouz, Marrakech, Ouarzazate, Taroudant, and Chichaoua.
