Morocco, a North African country bordering the Atlantic Ocean and Mediterranean Sea, is distinguished by its Berber, Arabian and European cultural influences. Marrakesh’s medina, a mazelike medieval quarter, offers entertainment in its Djemaa el-Fna square and souks (marketplaces) selling ceramics, jewelry and metal lanterns. The capital Rabat’s Kasbah of the Udayas is a 12th-century royal fort overlooking the water. ― Google

DG ECHO has allocated EUR 200 000 in support of the Morocco Red Crescent via the IFRC’s Disaster Response Emergency Fund (DREF), in addition to EUR 800 000 from the Acute Large Emergency Response Tool (ALERT) to support humanitarian aid operations.
