Aftermath of the Deadly Moroccan Earthquake: A Call for Solidarity and Support

17 Settembre 2023

Let’s keep in our prayers the people from Morocco. At least 2946 people have been killed and 5530 are injured due to the deadliest earthquake since 1960, with a magnitude of 6.8. The earthquake flattened villages across the High Atlas Mountains and destroyed several ancient buildings. Several rural towns were destroyed due to the fragile construction materials. Search and rescue teams have continued to look for victims under the rubble, but some areas were still out of reach. The death toll is expected to rise.
