On Friday 8th September, a 6.8 magnitude quake hit Morocco, the epicentre 45 miles south of Marrakech, devastating the lives of people living in these mountainous villages, killing more than 2,900 and affecting more than 300,000.
Many of the houses in these remote mountain villages were built from mud bricks, which crumbled under this quake.
The province of Al-Haouz, 40 miles from Marrakech, was almost destroyed. Authorities recorded more than 1,300 deaths in the province. Some families have lost more than 10 family members, their pain at this crippling time is unimaginable.
