Dounia Tamri-Loeper collects supplies to send over to those affected by a deadly earthquake in her homeland of Morocco.

A Chester County woman is collecting temporary shelters and items to send to her native Morocco following a devastating earthquake that left thousands dead and many more homeless, writes Kim Hudson for CBS News Philadelphia

“These villages are extremely high in the Atlas-mountain areas,” said Dounia Tamri-Loeper. “They’re very warm in the day and very cold at night.” 

Tamri-Loeper knows the affected area well. At first, she focused on collecting money but then added sleeping bags and tents. She will ship the collected items to Marrakech. From there, workers with her interior design business, Dounia Home, will use their own cars to make deliveries, as it is not possible for trucks to reach people. 

“My heart is breaking for them, and I will keep doing as much I can to help them,” she said.
