Thank you so much for your donation to the Morocco Earthquake Appeal.

Your donation will help Red Cross Red Crescent teams on the ground in Morocco provide vital support to those affected by the deadly earthquake and support them as they embark on their journey to recovery.

It is thanks to our incredible donors that the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement can provide critical assistance to people around the world in their time of greatest need, and remain by the sides of affected communities, long after others have left, to help them recover and rebuild their lives.


If you provided your email address, your donation receipt should be on its way to your inbox now.

On Friday 8 September, a 6.8 magnitude earthquake shook central Morocco – over 2,000 people lost their lives, thousands have been injured, and many others have been displaced. By donating to the Morocco Earthquake Appeal today, you are helping the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement deliver emergency relief to those in need and support them to recover.

It is estimated that around 6.6 million people have been impacted by this disaster – many of whom will have lost loved ones, their homes, and their livelihoods. Some of the worst affected areas in Morocco are in the Atlas Mountains and difficult to reach.

Moroccan Red Crescent Society teams were on the ground immediately after the earthquake struck and are continuing to work tirelessly to provide urgent assistance to those in the greatest need.

They’ve been administering first aid and psychosocial support. They’ve been supporting search and rescue operations, evacuating people from damaged buildings and helping transport the injured to hospitals.

By donating to the Morocco Earthquake Appeal, you are helping the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement reach over half a million people most in need with vital emergency relief.

Here in Aotearoa New Zealand, we know all too well the devastation earthquakes cause. Help communities in Morocco affected by this disaster by donating today.

In the unlikely event that we raise more money than can be reasonably and efficiently spent, any surplus funds will be used to help us prepare for and respond to other humanitarian disasters anywhere in the world.
