Morocco Urgently Appeals for Assistance!

Numerous fatalities have occurred in remote mountainous regions, primarily centered around the earthquake’s epicenter near Ighil in the High Atlas Mountains. This location is approximately 72 kilometers southwest of Marrakesh.

This seismic event is the most powerful to strike this North African region in over a century, resulting in devastating consequences. It has led to the destruction of buildings and has left already disadvantaged families with nothing.

Albaraka Welfare Trust is collaborating with our on-ground partners to provide essential assistance to the communities affected by this heart-wrenching earthquake. Our dedicated teams are tirelessly working to reach those who are most vulnerable, striving to save as many lives as possible in light of the extensive damage caused by this tragic incident.

“Whoever saves a life, it is as if he has saved the whole of mankind”

(Qur’an 5:32)
