Statement: Reaction to earthquake in Morocco

A powerful, deadly earthquake hit Morocco Friday night. DRC’s secretary-general Charlotte Slente has issued the following statement:

Posted on 10 Sep 2023

“At DRC we are heartbroken to learn of this tragedy, killing thousands and destroying the homes and livelihoods of countless more. The consequences will be felt by the entire country for years to come. I have seen the devastating effects of earthquakes, visiting DRC refugee operations in Türkiye shortly after the quake there earlier this year – and the destructive power of earthquakes is beyond belief. As DRC does not operate in Morocco, we will not be involved in rescue and relief operations this time. But we strongly encourage you to support organizations on the ground currently rushing to respond to this critical phase of the disaster.”
