In Morocco, MSF provides mental healthcare to people affected by the September 2023 earthquake.

On 8 September 2023, a 6.8 magnitude earthquake hit the rural area of the High Atlas Mountains, in the centre of the country. In the aftermath, we returned to Morocco, sending emergency teams to assess the humanitarian and medical situation in affected areas. With local groups covering essential needs, we are now addressing people’s mental health. We provide psychological support to people affected and to frontline volunteers, and train and support local groups on psychological first aid.

MSF previously worked in Morocco providing support to migrants. We handed over these activities to local health and human rights organisations in 2013.
