A devastating earthquake has struck Morocco
Thousands of people have been killed and many more injured. Buildings have been damaged and destroyed in Morocco’s towns and remote mountain villages.
It’s the strongest earthquake to hit Morocco since the 1960s.
In an emergency, children are always among the most vulnerable. Families have lost their homes and are in urgent need of shelter, safe water and medical care. Our team in Morocco is mobilised and ready to support children and their families.
Help us reach children affected by disasters like the Morocco earthquake.
We are appealing for donations to our Children’s Emergency Fund. This is a vital resource for children in emergencies, just like the Morocco earthquake. With funds ready to go, we can reach the most affected children and families fast.
Donate today and help us respond to emergencies around the world.
What’s Happening in Morocco?
The search for survivors continues after a 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck Morocco on Friday 8th September. The epicentre of the earthquake was high in the Atlas Mountains, southwest of Marrakech.

Aftershocks are likely to continue, putting children and families at further risk.
