Late on Friday, September 8, 2023, a catastrophic earthquake struck Morocco, causing major damage to the city of Marrakech and nearby areas. Recent estimates place the death toll above 2,800, while more than 300,000 others have been displaced.

The Giving Block has set up this Morocco Emergency Response Fund to provide support to charitable organizations working on the ground in Morocco to assist with relief efforts. 

If you are looking for ways to help, consider making a donation to our fund. Your generous gift will support numerous charities providing emergency medical care, food, shelter, and other forms of aid.
