A crowdfunding campaign on local platform Zaar hopes to offer urgent relief and support to victims of the earthquake in Morocco.
The powerful 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck Morocco at night on 8 September, killing and injuring thousands of people and devastating rural towns and villages near the city of Marrakesh. According to the Moroccan authorities, the earthquake is one of the deadliest to hit the country in decades.
The Hudson Foundation hopes to raise €10,000 through the crowdfunding campaign, which closes on 1 November. These vital funds will help support Hudson employees, their relatives and many others in Morocco who have been directly impacted by the disaster. Every donation received will go towards the immediate care of the homeless, providing housing, blankets and basic needs, while caring for orphans and those experiencing difficult and traumatic situations related to the earthquake.
Funds raised via the campaign will also help rehabilitate and reconstruct destroyed houses, cover economic expenses in the area related to management of the earthquake’s effects and boost the country’s reserves and stocks of necessities.
