Mission Detail

In response to the devastating earthquake in Morocco, Unite for a Cause, in collaboration with the American Heritage School club and the International Education Consortium (IEC), spearheaded a vital relief operation to assist the thousands impacted by the tragedy. Under the leadership of Moe, our dedicated Director of Disaster Relief, this initiative exemplified the power of community solidarity. Together, the South Florida community rallied to gather and send a wide range of essential supplies, including winter clothing, tents, and medical aid. A 40-foot container was filled to the brim with critical items such as blankets, clothing, and medical equipment, showcasing the immense support and generosity of everyone involved in South Florida. This collective effort stands as a profound expression of gratitude to the South Florida community, whose contributions were instrumental in making this relief mission possible.

The earthquake that struck Morocco on September 8, 2023, near the town of Oukaïmedene in western Morocco, was a profound tragedy, claiming the lives of more than 2,900 people and injuring over 5,500. The magnitude 6.8 quake, described as the country’s deadliest in 60 years, caused widespread devastation. Thousands of individuals were left homeless, grappling with the loss of their homes and livelihoods. The quake’s impact was extensive, affecting rural and urban areas alike, disrupting essential services, and challenging the resilience of the affected communities.
