King Mohammed VI of Morocco has impressed the world with his incredible display of compassion and solidarity in times of need. As a true symbol of the unity of his country, the Moroccan leader went to the university hospital in Marrakech, the city most affected by Saturday’s earthquake, to donate blood.

Muhammad VI did not enjoy the privileges and ceremonies of welcome that usually accompany his visits. Instead, he modestly stood in line where those who wanted to help those affected by the disaster waited. It is reported that several thousand Moroccans throughout the country have become donors these days.

Once the blood collection procedure was completed, the king walked through the corridors of the medical center, where, according to preliminary data, more than 2,100 people are now located, 484 of whom are in serious condition. He visited intensive care units and hospitalizations, inquiring about the health status of the injured.

Previously, Mohammed VI declared three days of mourning in the country. To date, the number of Moroccans killed as a result of the earthquake amounts to 2,901 and 5,530 injured. Large-scale search and rescue efforts continue as people in need of help remain buried under the rubble of destroyed buildings. A true miracle occurred in Marrakech: three days after the tragedy, a live newborn with an umbilical cord was pulled out of the rubble. It is still unclear where his mother is.

Let us remember that the first earthquake of magnitude 6.9 occurred on Saturday night 80 kilometers from Marrakech. Twenty minutes later, the Euro-Mediterranean Seismological Center recorded at least four more tremors in Morocco.
