The people of Morocco are in our thoughts and hearts at this tragic and difficult time.
We are relieved to report that the women of the Sana Jardin Cooperative are safe. And we thank you for your messages and compassion.
To help support the communities in the High Atlas Mountains, for the week commencing 11th September, Sana Jardin donated 20% of its online sales to the Eve Branson Foundation Morocco Earthquake Response Fund. You can donate directly to the fundraiser here.
“I hope the world shines a light on Morocco as much as Morocco has shined a magical light on the world.
On the ground in Marrakech, the Eve Branson Foundation has mobilised fast to support their communities in the High Atlas Mountains. Their Earthquake Response Fund is raising money and will meet the immediate needs of food, water, shelter and fuel for the families in the Asni Valley. The fund will then transition and re-build housing, infrastructure, and schools as needs evolve helping to enable the community to move forward.”
Amy Christiansen, Founder of Sana Jardin
