On Friday, September 8, the earth trembled beneath the High Atlas region of Morocco as a powerful 6.8 magnitude earthquake struck. In the aftermath of this natural disaster, a resilient spirit of solidarity Regenerative Travel joins hands with our hotel partners to raise funds for earthquake relief and recovery.
The epicenter of the earthquake lies where the Kasbah du Toubkal, a cherished partner of Regenerative Travel, stands tall. This establishment has long been associated with Education For All, an organization dedicated to providing boarding houses and education opportunities for girls in remote areas.
The earthquake has not only shaken the physical foundations of the High Atlas region but has also profoundly affected the lives of the girls residing in the Education For All boarding houses. These houses have sustained significant damage, and the urgent need for repairs is accompanied by the necessity to replace damaged furniture and computers. As the community rallies to assess the situation and ensure the safety of the girls, the call for support echoes louder than ever.
Supporting Education for All through our charity auction
Education For All’s mission to empower girls in remote areas by providing access to education now faces a critical juncture. Immediate repairs to the six damaged houses and the replacement of their contents are imperative. Beyond physical restoration, there is a pressing need for emergency support encompassing food, medicine, water, and communication assistance to aid not only the affected girls but also their families and the local communities.
Every donation made in response to this call for help will contribute to both short-term and long-term initiatives. The funds from our charity auction will be channeled toward rebuilding houses and revitalizing the communities from which these girls hail, ensuring that their dreams and aspirations can once again flourish.
How can we help as travelers?
In these challenging times, solidarity transcends borders. Morocco, a nation known for its rich cultural heritage and warmth, now looks to the global community for support. As we extend our hands in unity, let us remember that even from afar, we can make a world of difference.
While the High Atlas region rebuilds, Marrakech, Casablanca, Fes, Tangier, Chefchaouen, the Sahara, and the Agafay desert remain open to visitors, operating as usual. The resilience of Morocco’s hospitality industry now doubles as much-needed support for relief efforts. Regenerative Travel encourages travelers to keep their plans, both current and future, as a testament to the unwavering spirit of the Moroccan people. Together, we can heal, rebuild, and continue to cherish the beauty and culture of this remarkable nation.
