DESCRIPTION

The Morocco – Marrakesh 6.8 Richter scale Earthquake of September 8, 2023 was a major natural disaster, with a heavy death toll (over 2.000 deaths and 2.800 injured reported in the first 24h). Situated in the north of Africa, very close to the European continent and the Strait of Gibraltar, Morocco is a country with close bonds to neighbors such as Portugal, Spain and France. As the Earthquake hit, reverberations and replicas were felt across the region, including in cities like Faro, Lagos and Lisbon (Portugal) and Seville, Malaga and Granada (Spain).

Portuguese NGO’s prepared a Humanitarian Caravan with logistic and human support, humanitarian aid (food, water, medical supplies, etc.) to depart within five days, on rout to the Strait of Gibraltar and thereon to the Marrakesh region. The Templar Corps International is joining the Humanitarian Caravan.
