Emergency: Morocco Earthquake & Libya Floods

In September 2023, two catastrophic events struck North Africa, leaving a trail of devastation in their wake. The magnitude 6.8 earthquake in Morocco and the unprecedented floods in Libya, caused by Storm Daniel, have resulted in thousands of casualties, displacements, and infrastructural damages. This emergency campaign aims to bring attention to these twin tragedies and rally support for the affected communities.

Morocco Earthquake: The Aftermath

  • 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: The Deluge of Despair

  • 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.

How You Can Help

The combined impact of these disasters is monumental, and the affected regions are in dire need of immediate assistance. Your support can provide:

  • Provide emergency shelter and food to displaced families.

  • Provide clothing and hygeine packs 

  • Assist in rebuilding efforts and infrastructure restoration.


The resilience of the human spirit is tested during such calamities. But with collective effort, compassion, and unwavering support, we can help rebuild lives and communities.


Let's lend a helping hand with our wealth, and make dua for the victims!
