Morocco Earthquake Relief

On September 8, 2023, a powerful 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck Morocco, just south of Marrakesh in the High Atlas Mountains. This earthquake was devastating, with more than 2,900 people killed according to the latest reports. Many of the Berber villages in this mountainous region have been cut off, so news was slow to get out. Reports and photos and videos have shown  widespread destruction. Villages have been ruined, homes and other buildings are piles of rubble, mountain roads are blocked by fallen rocks the size of cars. And the people are still working to rebuild their lives, a process expected to take 2 – 3 years.

SCM is working with an NGO partner in Morocco to get aid directly to the villages and have so far provided funds to distribute food, clothing, and other supplies. We now have a campaign to raise funds for solar lanterns that will be delivered with a group going to Morocco at the end of April 2024. 

The lanterns we plan to get are from LuminAid and are also cell phone chargers. As a non-profit we are able to get them at a reduced rate. Many of the affected villages are still without power or people are living in tents with no power to them. The solar lanterns will provide light for safety and a means to charge cellphones without having to search out an electrical outlet away from home. The cell phone is an important means of communication for so many, they need to be able to keep their phone charged.

Our goal for the lanterns is to get 200 of them. The cost will be about $6500 whihc includes shipping and tax. Please help us reach this goal and more to help the people of Morocco. You can donate to the Solar Lantern campaign at this link.

Please join us in supporting the people of Morocco who have been affected by this devastating quake.
