A 7.4-magnitude earthquake with widespread destruction rocked several towns and cities in southern Turkey and northern Syria at 04:17 on February 6, 2023. Nine minutes later, at 04:26, another earthquake slammed the same region. Then came more than 150 aftershocks, which collectively caused extensive destruction in numerous cities and villages, as well as thousands of fatalities and injuries, many of whom are still buried beneath the wreckage.
We started by organizing emergency relief initiatives and were successful in providing the victims with the following aid:
• 3,000 litres of fuel
• 150 tarpaulins
• 3,000 prepared foods
• 1 000 food packages
• 500 quilts
• 500 bedframes
As it is a true catastrophe, we hope with your help to alleviate the suffering as much as we can.
Our teams are there and do their best effort, however, they need more supplies to help more victims.
The Urgent Response campaign aims to afford the urgent needs of each family, especially the children, by giving them three mattresses, six blankets, three fresh and warm meals, a food basket, and three sets of warm clothing.
300 beneficiary families are expected to receive aid in Syria, and 300 in Turkey.
