Morocco Earthquake Appeal

The devastating earthquake in Morocco killed 3,000 people and devastated the mountainous region. This winter, survivors will be plunged into feet of snow without a roof over their heads. We urgently need help to provide warm winter clothing, shelter and food to families at risk this winter.

Urgent aid needed in the Atlas Mountains

3,000 people were killed and over 5,600 were injured in the devastating earthquake that struck on Friday 8 September. Mountains have been split, toppling onto homes, entire villages have been crumpled, pushing families to the brink of what they can endure.

Those who survived are still living in the open air, under simple temporary shelters that don’t protect them from the blistering cold of winter.

Each winter, this mountainous region is covered in a deep layer of snow – many villages are completely cut off during the height of winter. Please help us to provide families with warmth, cooking kits, and food before the snow hits.

Be a mercy to a family

Emergency food kit - £80

Provide 50 kilograms of food, including flour, oil, dates, lentils, sugar, oil, semolina, tuna, rice, pasta, as well as 2 litres of water.

Winter clothing kit - £52

Each kit provides a person with clothing to keep them warm and dry in the upcoming cold weather – a winter coat and winter boots. Winters in this region are below zero with heavy snow so it’s essential to act now to protect families before the winter weather hits.

Shelter kit - £48

Provide a family forced to flee their home with a warm winter blanket and a mattress, providing a warm comfortable bed.

Kitchen kit - £40

Help a family who has lost all their home supplies in the earthquake, allowing them to cook and eat with dignity. Each £40 provides a family with a cooking pot and frying pan, a kettle, coffee pot. 6 glasses, spoons, knives, as well as a set of plastic plates.

Emergency cleaning kit - £10

Provide families who survived the quake with cleaning supplies including laundry detergent, bleach, and dish soap. These essential items allow families to maintain good hygiene and avoid waterborne sicknesses in this transitional period.

Medical supplies

We’re delivering containers of medical aid to Morocco – for every £10 you donate, we’ll transform it into £90-worth of vital medical equipment, such as surgical tools, anaesthesia items, and monitoring and recovery tools.

Working with a local Moroccan partner of six years, Human Appeal is supporting families in the affected area, delivering your aid. We’re one of the few charities granted permission to be working here, and our staff are ready and waiting for your donations.

The most powerful earthquake in over a century

The location and scale of the earthquake – in a mountainous region filled with simple stone houses has had a devastating outcome. Earthquakes are rare here and houses aren’t built to withstand them. Now, entire communities are struggling to survive.

Human Appeal’s response

In these darkest hours, Human Appeal is standing in solidarity with the people of Morocco, but we also are working proactively to provide clear, concrete support. We are working tirelessly in cooperation with our partners on the ground to deliver essential aid to the communities affected by this tragic earthquake.

In the first month following the quake, we provided:

• Food parcels and hygiene kits to 5,808 people

• 1,882 blankets and mattresses

In the coming weeks, we’re refocusing on preparing the community for winter, providing them with warm waterproof items so that when the sub-zero temperatures arrive, they have a way to stay warm and dry.

We’ll also be providing tents, pallets, plastic mats, food parcels, winter kits, and school kits.

Entrust your charity in Morocco to our 32 years of experience in delivering aid in emergencies, and our 6-year partnership in Morocco.

We need your help to provide these items before winter arrives.

All donations are Zakat-eligible.
