Moroccan Earthquakes Shock Thousands
On September 8th, seemingly overnight, thousands watched the lives they lived shatter in front of their eyes. Homes demolished, family members injured – all due to the devastating earthquake to hit the region.
The earthquakes of September 2023 rattled the hearts of many around the world, but it shattered the lives of thousands of Moroccans. Help is on the way for those who have lost everything—from homes to the people they loved the most.
As the day started, many Moroccans followed their routine as usual. Mothers took their children to school, fathers went to work, and families came home later to eat together and engage each other in stories and laughter. Life was typical and beautiful for thousands of Moroccans—until 11:11 at night, their world shook and crumbled around them.
