Families in the Atlas Mountains are still living in the open air, under simple temporary shelters that don’t protect them from the blistering cold of the upcoming winter. Mountains have been split, toppling onto homes, entire villages have been crumpled, pushing families to the brink of what they can endure.
3,000 people were killed and over 5,600 were injured in the devastating earthquake that struck on Friday 8 September.
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.
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.

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:
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, kitchen sets, 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.
The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) said, “The believers are like one body in their mutual love and affection: if one limb is injured, the rest responds with sleeplessness and fever.”Hadith Muslim
