Cheryl Fergison made an appeal to her followers and asked them to donate to rescue efforts in Morocco as she revealed her husband is trying to help the community.
The former EastEnders actress said her husband was in a state of “shock” after flying out to help his family in disaster-struck Morocco.
Cheryl, 58, said her spouse Yassine el Jamouni is trying to help the community as she asked for supplies to help those who need assistance.
In a candid Instagram video, she said: “I’m married to Yassine who is Moroccan and my family are Moroccan. And over the last few days, it’s been, let’s say, very challenging in their country. And I said, ‘What’s the matter?’.
“He said, ‘Actually, I didn’t want to alarm you. But you know, we all had to get out of the house’ and he made sure that people were safe where he was.

“And his community were doing the same thing. And so I have been in a bit of shock, as well, and some of my posts have been quite reflective.”
Cheryl then went on to say that she asked him what is needed in the country that has been badly affected by the earthquake.
She also confirmed that the areas most affected have been in remote regions in the mountains but added some towns and cities have also been hit.
The actress also revealed her husband said that people are in desperate need of temporary accommodation such as tents after the destruction of their houses and homes.

In an urgent plea, Cheryl explained: “I am appealing to any companies who would be able to donate sleeping equipment, tents, or things for people to live in temporary shelters and who are able to get them shipped out.”
She went on: “I mean food is always an issue, but it’s not the main priority there. To be honest, it’s getting people under shelter, and in the warm at night, because it gets cold.
“I want to really use this for the best purpose that I can. I have a platform and I would love to use it.
“I send my love, my prayers, and absolute my heart to the people of Morocco, the families who have lost friends, family members or loved ones, for those that are injured, and still getting medical attention.”
The catastrophic earthquake in Morocco has destroyed entire towns and claimed almost 3,000 lives.
