MSF ended our activities in response to the 2023 earthquake in December 2023.

In Morocco, MSF provided 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 addressed people’s mental health. We provided psychological support to people affected and to frontline volunteers. We also trained and supported local groups on psychological first aid. Some of these activities were handed over and the rest ended in December 2023.

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