Responding to the earthquake in Morocco

Help deploy Emergency Floor

Help deploy Emergency Floor

Every Shelter will begin producing 1,500 tiles (760m2) weekly until we run out of funds.

Our partners in Morocco will distribute them to families as part of their relief efforts there.

Our partners have traveled to the most devastated towns and villages flattened by the 6.8 magnitude earthquake. 

A generous donor has provided $22.5K, which can manufacture 2 weeks of flooring production as we continue to raise.

Our manufacturer also has a plant in Morocco unaffected by the earthquake, so we can respond rapidly and affordably.

$150 can provide a floor for one shelter or $11,250 for a week’s production (75 shelters).

Please help us keep this production going–the need is so immense, yet little media attention is being given to this crisis. 

Help deploy Emergency Floor.

Over 2,900 people were killed when a deadly earthquake hit Morocco’s Atlas Mountains on September 8th.

Many survivors struggle in makeshift shelters in remote mountain villages that suffered some of the worst devastation. 

We are in a unique position to help as we have partners in Morocco currently responding to the crisis, and our Emergency Floor manufacturer in Turkiye has a second site in Morocco.  

The remote mountainous villages hit hardest by the quake get quite cold.

Our floors are an instant thermal barrier and can be the difference between warmth, hypothermia, and death on a cold night.

We are ready to act, but we need your continued help.

It takes approximately $150 to install floors in one family’s shelter.

Join us in this locally-led response by investing in Emergency Floor, our life-saving shelter solution.

Emergency Floor is Every Shelter’s first product solution, and it’s making an impact across the globe.

Product Details

Emergency Floor is a quickly deployable, lightweight, insulated flooring system perfect for winterization efforts. It is intuitive to install and requires no tools. In most settings, an entire install can be completed in fewer than 10 minutes by first time installers. It can be installed on the ground, on concrete slabs, and even on shipping pallets or sand bags. Each tile weighs approximately 0.6 kg and covers .5 m2 each, meaning they are easily handled and great for logistically challenging camp settings. They ship 1,344 per ISO 20 and 2,822 per ISO 40.

Most Affordable Solution

No other solution available offers the same value of our floors. It is the perfect solution for your next shelter improvement project.

Compatible with Existing Shelters

Emergency Floor tiles may easily be cut with a utility knife to dodge any impediment and create a custom fit in any shelter on the market.

Non-Permanent Shelter Improvement

Many host countries insist that improvements made are non-permanent. Though Emergency Floor will last through years of abuse, it installs and uninstalls in minutes. It can be moved easily if a camp needs to relocate.

Reduces Heating Fuel Expenses by Up to 20%

Made from a very durable insulating material primarily found in the automotive industry, Emergency Floor provides an R4 insulative value where you need it most. Our floors can pay for themselves in less than 2 years.

Reduces Medical Needs and Expenses

Initial research indicates that replacing dirt floors with Emergency Floor could improve cognitive development in children and reduce parasitic infections by 78%, instances of diarrhea by 49%, and anemia by 81%.

Promotes Higher Morale in Camp Settings

Comfortable and easily cleaned, Emergency Floor brings a much higher level of dignity to families than a standard dirt floor.

What’s the best way to keep a tent warm in the winter? Current methods primarily include issuing more blankets, insulating two or more walls, and providing a diesel stove. These definitely help but another critical element is still lacking: flooring.

Conflict in Syria, and the resultant mass exodus of its residents fleeing for safety, has greatly affected its neighbors, especially Lebanon. Of the 5.6 million people who have fled Syria since 2011, more than 1 million have settled in Lebanon. For a country with a total population of only 6 million residents, the strain of hosting a drastic influx of refugees has taken a toll on its infrastructure and resources.
