In immediate response to Morocco’s devastating 6.8 earthquake we are on the ground in Morocco.
Over 2,200 people are confirmed to have lost their lives so far, with many structures completely destroyed, including historical sites. We are operating between Marrakesh and the Altas Mountains.
We are delivering aid (food, water and hygiene,) to the most vulnerable communities. Each Family Food kit containing items like oil, tea, shampoo, hand soap, sugar, couscous, water, biscuits, and tuna. Post-distribution, GEM has faced challenges with restocking due to market shortages but managed to order 250 foam mattresses, highly requested by locals now sleeping in open spaces. GEM will be offering immediate humanitarian relief to all those affected.
