Morocco earthquake : HI expresses its support

Emergency
Morocco

A magnitude 6.8 earthquake struck the Al-Haouz province of Morocco at around 11pm on Friday 8 September. HI has been present in the kingdom since 1993, and shows its support for Moroccans.

Surprised in the middle of the night, many residents left their homes in a hurry to seek shelter if the buildings collapsed.

The latest news is that more than a thousand people have been killed and more than 1,200 injured, most of them in the provinces of Al-Haouz and Taroudant, with hundreds of buildings destroyed and the population in a state of shock.

HI, which has been present in Morocco since 1993 and maintains close relations with its partners in the field, is expressing its full support and solidarity with the Moroccan people in the face of the scale of the disaster.

All our teams are safe and sound. We will also remain attentive on developments in the situation and will continue to work alongside our Moroccan partners to intervene if necessary.

Risk of a collapse of the humanitarian aid in Gaza

New crossing points and ‘floating dock’ are cosmetic changes, as humanitarian access disintegrates in Gaza, warn aid agencies

 

Jerusalem, 28 May 2024 – As Israeli attacks intensify on Rafah, the unpredictable trickle of aid into Gaza has created a mirage of improved access while the humanitarian response is in reality on the verge of collapse, warn 20 aid agencies. The latest Israeli attacks on a displacement camp near UN aid facilities in Rafah reportedly killed dozens of people, including children, and injured many more. The ability of aid groups and medical teams to respond has now all but crumbled, with temporary fixes such as a ‘floating dock’ and new crossing points having little impact.
