Philea expresses solidarity with the victims of the recent earthquake in Morocco

We, like countless others across the globe, were deeply saddened by the earthquake that recently struck Morocco, resulting in profound loss of life and widespread destruction. In the wake of this disaster, our hearts go out to those affected and to those currently facing urgent needs such as food, shelter, access to clean water, medical care, and healthcare services.

As the situation evolves, we are committed to sharing information about the responses undertaken by Philea members as we become aware of them.
