AMDA Emergency Relief #1: Earthquake in Morocco

Publication date:2023-09-13
In response to the devastating earthquake that struck Morocco on 8 September 2023, AMDA has dispatched two relief personnel to the disaster site.

A magnitude 6.8 quake struck the province of Al Haouz in the Atlas Mountains located 70 kilometres southwest of Marrakesh. Morocco’s interior ministry said on 12 September that the death toll reached 2,901 while 5,530 people were injured.

Immediately after the earthquake occurred, AMDA decided to send two aid workers to the affected area based on the information gathering and disaster assessment. The two (with each being a nurse and coordinator) have left Japan on 13 September, and are expected to arrive in Casablanca on the following day. Likewise, a doctor from AMDA Hospital Damak in Nepal (run by AMDA Nepal) will be joining the mission at the site.
