Children Affected by the Earthquake Benefit from Psychological Support

In the wake of the earthquake that shook several regions of Morocco, the psychological repercussions were inescapable for the populations affected, particularly children, who require special attention in such situations.

In the province of Ouarzazate, where nine communes were affected by the earthquake, a psychological support team made up of Entraide Nationale staff, psychologists, experts and civil society players was mobilized on Sunday to alleviate the psychological and social after-effects of this natural disaster on victims, particularly children.

“Mental health support is essential to help children and their families cope with the effects of this natural disaster,” said Mina Lamrighi, coordinator of the Child Protection Unit of the provincial delegation of Entraide Nationale in Ouarzazate.

Pursuant to the High Royal Instructions, Entraide Nationale has mobilized its staff and partners to provide psychological and social support services to children and families affected by the disaster, she told MAP, adding that specific measures have also been taken, in coordination with the relevant stakeholders, to take care of orphans and children in difficult situations.
