We are deeply saddened by the devastating earthquake that struck Morocco on 8 September, resulting in the loss of over 2,500 lives and extensive damage to the region. Our hearts and thoughts go out to all those affected by this tragedy.
Since this happened, the local population has rallied, with increasing support from the international community.
In response to this crisis, the Group has taken immediate action to support the relief efforts in collaboration with our local teams at Sopra Banking Software and Sopra HR. Together, we have initiated several measures to assist the communities affected.
Many of you have expressed your concern and shared your willingness to contribute to possible Group measures and local actions to support the relief efforts.
As such, we are launching a fundraising campaign open to employees in all Group entities. All funds collected will then be contributed to the “Emergency Morocco” fundraising campaign already launched by the Red Cross / Red Crescent.
In addition to our immediate relief efforts, we are committed to providing long-term support, particularly in the area of education for the most vulnerable and disadvantaged children in Morocco.
Thank you for your contribution.
