AIIC Fundraiser: Uniting for Morocco Earthquake & Libya Floods Relief
Unprecedented Catastrophes in North Africa
In September 2023, North Africa was shaken by two catastrophic events: a magnitude 6.8 earthquake in Morocco and devastating floods in Libya, triggered by Storm Daniel. These calamities have wreaked havoc, causing extensive casualties, displacements, and infrastructural damages. This emergency campaign seeks to spotlight these dual tragedies and mobilize support for the impacted communities.
Morocco Earthquake: A Nation in Ruins
Date: September 8, 2023
Epicenter: High Atlas Mountains, 71km south-west of Marrakesh
Impact: Over 2,900 lives lost, more than 5,500 injured, and countless infrastructures destroyed.
Response: Emergency shelter packs, community kitchens, and coordinated efforts with local NGOs to provide aid.
Libya Floods: A Torrent of Sorrow
Date: September 10, 2023
Cause: Storm Daniel's record rainfall and the collapse of two poorly maintained dams.
Epicenter of Damage: City of Derna
Impact: Death toll of at least 11,300, with 10,100 missing in Derna alone. Over 884,000 people affected across Libya.
Challenges: Displacement, lack of clean water, food, shelter, potential disease outbreaks, and political rivalries hampering relief efforts.
