Two Emergencies in One Week
The most powerful earthquake in 120 years hit Morocco on Friday night, causing widespread destruction, pain and devastation. Right now, more than 3,600 people have died as a result of the earthquake and around 100,000 children have seen their homes, schools and hospitals damaged or destroyed.In the same week, catastrophic floods in Libya washed away homes with families trapped inside, health facilities, water systems and schools destroyed or heavily damaged. Right now, over 283,000 children are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance. The situation is catastrophic.
In both countries, many children are reported to be injured, in shock and traumatised.
Sadly, natural disasters like the ones which struck Morocco and Libya are becoming more frequent. We must work to protect all children in crisis. Donate now to send life-saving supplies to children in emergency. There is no time to lose.
