On the night of September 8th, a 6.8 magnitude earthquake shook the Atlas mountains in Morocco causing much death and destruction, with almost 3,000 already confirmed dead.

The epicenter was located about 45 miles southwest of Marrakech, a city of about 840,000 people. 

assessing the needs

Over the past 48 hours, our team has been meeting with the locals, making contacts, and learning the culture.

We spent the day going to villages in the mountains affected by the earthquake, assessing the needs, and helping where possible.

There are currently some obstacles restricting us from working at full scale. Please pray that we’d be able to get the necessary permission to be able to operate.
