Severe flash floods in Morocco’s south over the weekend have left at least 40 dead and many more missing, according to reports from the Moroccan Red Crescent. The argan region near Agadir and the Anti-Atlas Mountains was heavily impacted. The torrential rains also destroyed hundreds of mud homes and damaged the countries’ infrastructure, closing one hundred roads, including six national highways. Our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones and are otherwise affected by the devastation.
In the coming months, Kahina’s donations will be directed towards relief for our friends in the Anti-Atlas village of ait Goh, which was heavily impacted by the storm.
