On Friday, September 8 at 11 pm (local time), a 6.8 magnitude earthquake hit the Hight Atlas Mountains in Morocco and took 2,900 lives.

Moroccan students and staff across the University of Maryland are hosting a Moroccan reception and movie screening on Monday, September 25 at 5 pm, at the H.J Patterson Hall Atrium, hoping to raise funds for the Morocco Earthquake relief.

Moroccan tea and cookies will be provided at the 5 pm reception, and the movie "Al Massira: la Marche Verte" (the Green March) will follow.

The movie will be played in Arabic and French, with English subtitles.
