Thank you for taking the time to read this eight-month progress update on ActionAid's response to the September 2023 earthquake in Morocco and how we are continuing to support community resilience in the country. 

ActionAid continues to provide recovery support with its local partner, Tamghart Noudrar (The Mountain Woman), in Feburary and March by distributing hygiene kits, food, and providing safe spaces for women in Imilil and Tifert. Tamghart Noudrar is a woman-led organization based in Imilil, a ninety minute drive from Marrakesh. 

In the aftermath of the earthquake, Samira E., the Director of Tamghart Noudrar, is unable to return home due to the danger of collapse. She now regularly journeys to visit women in small affected communities, including Tifert, that are only accessible by dirt roads to distribute humanitarian aid. "We're doing something for the community, so despite the problems, we always resist and every year we prove that we can achieve quite a lot”, Samira spoke.

Young women, such as Kwtar, play an active role in distributing humanitarian aid following their participation in workshops facilitated by Tamghart Noudrar. She is the only woman in Taghzout, a rural commune on the coast of Morocco, who is participating in the leadership workshops. ActionAid is supporting 10 families in Taghzout living in tents with food and hygiene kits. 

Thank you for your continued support during this critical time as we continue to work with community partners to address urgent humanitarian needs in Morocco.
