Novartis is deeply concerned and saddened by the devastation caused by the earthquake in Morocco on September 9, 2023. Our thoughts are with the people affected by this tragic disaster. We can confirm that our Novartis associates are safe.
In collaboration with our local team, we are closely monitoring the developments to ensure the delivery of essential medicines to patients in need. As a company, we are committed to supporting the humanitarian effort and have pledged a donation of USD 1 million. Our priority is to ensure this support reaches those most in need, and we are currently working with Novartis’ non-profit partners.
Furthermore, Novartis has initiated an employee donation campaign in partnership with non-profit organizations, and we will match the funds donated by our employees. In coordination with local health authorities, Novartis is also preparing to donate vital medicines to patients with urgent needs and is locally offering paid hours to associates volunteering to those in need.
