Morocco Winter Emergency:
Providing Warmth and Shelter for Earthquake-Affected Families
In the chilling aftermath of a devastating earthquake, countless families in Morocco find themselves in a desperate race against time. Exposed to the unforgiving elements high in the Atlas Mountains, they endure the harsh cold in temporary shelters that offer no protection. Penny Appeal's Winter Emergency campaign is here to make a difference, offering hope and warmth to those who need it most.
An Ongoing Crisis in the Midst of Winter
In the Atlas Mountains, winter settles in as early as November and can persist until April. These freezing months are a daunting prospect for those already struggling. The earthquake has left 380,000 people in a terrifying position, facing a winter of uncertainty.
The situation is dire for the most vulnerable in society, with 3.7 million children requiring essential humanitarian assistance.
The challenges are particularly great for women, girls, and disabled individuals, who face unique hardships during this harsh season.
