Members of the Africa Christian Professionals Forum (ACPF) are calling for global solidarity with the people of God in the North African countries of Libya and Morocco affected by deadly floods and earthquakes, respectively.
At least 5,000 people have been confirmed dead and more than 30,000 displaced following deadly floods when Mediterranean Storm Daniel hit Libya on Tuesday, September 12, according to the British Red Cross.
Meanwhile, at least 2,946 people have been confirmed dead following a 6.8 magnitude earthquake that struck Morocco on the night of September 8.
In a statement shared with ACI Africa, ACPF members declare their “unwavering support” for those affected by the natural disasters.
“We call upon our members and partners across the African continent to join the Government and key agencies in Morocco and Libya in supporting our brothers and sisters in their time of need, whether through prayer, financial assistance, or any means available,” the Christian professionals say in their Thursday, September 14 statement.
