Rabat – The families of Moroccan victims and survivors of west London’s destroyed Grenfell Tower celebrated Eid Al Fitr at the Moroccan embassy in London on Monday.
Following instructions from King Mohammed VI to provide assistance to all Moroccans affected by the fire, General Consul Abderrahim Beyyoudh and Moroccan Ambassador to the UK Abdesselam Aboudrar shared both condolences and sympathy to everybody affected by the blaze.
Relatives of the Moroccan victims and survivors expressed their thanks and gratitude to the King for the help he gave to the Moroccan community in the UK.
On June 16, the King instructed Moroccan authorities to pay for the repatriation of the six Moroccan victims formally identified in the fire.
On June 20, the Moroccan embassy and consulate in London held an iftar in the British capital, in solidarity with people who escaped the fire in the 24-storey apartment block.
Beyyoudh and Aboudrar have also held a meeting with Moroccan families involved in the fire.
Over 79 people are believed to have died in the fire on June 14, which was sparked by a faulty fridge and spread due to flammable cladding.
