SOUTHFIELD, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, September 15, 2023/ -- The earthquake that struck Morocco late Friday night has left the country beyond devastated, with residents losing nearly, if not everything in one day. Life for Relief and Development (LIFE) has been working around the clock to send emergency aid to the thousands of families affected by the aftermath of the disaster. Aid includes items such as tents, mattresses, pillows, blankets, hygiene kits and food aid.

"In the heart of Morocco, where the earth trembled, our organization, Life for Relief and Development (LIFE), stands firm as a beacon of hope. We are not just providing aid; we are building bridges of compassion, healing wounds, and nurturing the resilience of the Moroccan people. Together, we are rewriting the story of strength rising from the rubble, and our commitment remains unwavering,” said Dr. Hany Saqr, CEO of LIFE.
