Hi, I am Hamza, one of the thousands of victims of the earthquake in Morocco from the last Friday the 8th of September, the strongest Morocco ever had. left behind massive damage, almost 3000 deaths, 2800 people injured, villages being destroyed, and infrastructure in terrible condition.
I came from a poor family in the high Atlas Mountains of Morocco, My father worked all his life as a builder to raise me and my family, being a hard-working father from the high peaks.
He built on his own the Hotel of La Belle Vue on the mountain pass of Tizi N'Test at 2100m Above sea level in the late 80s, which later became the only source of income for the family. Growing up I was helping my brother Mohammed and my father Hassan to manage the hotel and to keep it going.
When the earthquake hit I was in the hotel with a couple of French clients, I hurried to get everyone out of the hotel making sure nobody was hurt, and ran down the hill to check up on my family that was living about a 1km down the hill, screaming for help and wishing that everyone survived, in the dark I heard my father shouting ''everyone is okay son, our house is destroyed''. luck has been on our side, many of the villages surrounding were destroyed and its people were buried within.
The earthquake destroyed all the roads leading from all sides, and in a matter of seconds we were isolated from the world, the deads are dead and Their friends and families were there by themselves trying to get everyone from under the ground and rescue those who were still living, with basic equipments.
The Moroccan Army was flying the helicopters to get to us by air but it wasn't enough, people were dying and the surviving were dying of heat and thirst during the day, and hanger and cold during the nights.
3 days after the earthquake hit, the Moroccan people from the rest of the country came with food and clothes to help us. but still, we don't have tents to hide from the sun and sleep during the night, hoping that rain will not come soon.
I beg all of our kind hearts to help us to by some tents and rebuild our houses, so our families don't freeze in the winter that will come soon.
Thank you so much for every coin, Hamza from Tizi n'Test Morocco.
