Life After the Quake in Morocco

Life After the Quake in Morocco

The Magic of Morocco continues to enchant and inspire

As the people of Morocco continue their comeback from the earthquake that struck the Atlas mountains in September, 2023, it’s clear that the allure of this captivating country remains as strong as ever – as any guest on our Magic of Morocco tour will attest. From the bustling medinas of Marrakech to the majestic mountain landscapes, it’s a journey that, now more than ever, enriches and inspires – showing that Morocco is very much a destination to be explored and celebrated.

An expert tour director and a selfless advocate

Chris Morrison, a seasoned Tauck Director and the founder of Care Highway International (CHI), embodies the spirit of dedication that we proudly stand for at Tauck. When not leading tours – including the Magic of Morocco – Chris directs his energy toward impactful humanitarian efforts in the area. After the devastating quake, his initiative to provide immediate relief became a beacon of hope. CHI’s work, supported by contributions from Tauck Impact efforts, continues to focus on tangible improvements, like shelter construction. As Chris says, “It’s a beautiful thing to see a family who were living in a tent with four other families walk into their new home.”

Building more than shelters

The shelter project that began as a modest initiative to build nine structures has grown exponentially. Thanks to collaborations with local organizations, like The Higher Atlas Foundation, the project now aims to construct over 100 shelters, transforming the lives of 1,500 to 2,000 people – not just by providing roofs, but by rebuilding communities and restoring dignity.

Tauck & CHI: committed to making an Impact

At Tauck, our partnership with CHI – and many other organizations around the world – goes beyond mere donations; it’s about making a lasting impact. These collaborations reflect our commitment to responsible tourism and support for local communities, ensuring that the benefits of travel extend beyond our guests to the places and people we visit along the way. Our joint efforts in Morocco are just one example of how travel can be a powerful force for good.
