Help save lives in Turkey and Syria

Two powerful earthquakes hit back-to-back, devastating Turkey and northern Syria. Over 40,000 people have died, including thousands of children, and there are nearly thousands injured. Your help is urgently needed to bring relief to the thousands of survivors, many of them children and babies, stranded in the brutal cold, without warmth or shelter in winter.

In a region marked by civil war and unrest, the epicentre of the earthquake created a disaster within a disaster. People there already faced food and fuel shortages, rising prices, and the hardships of 12 years of war. Now, with their homes, buildings, and roads destroyed, they have nothing but the goodwill and kindness of others to help them pick up the pieces. Aid is urgently needed in the earthquake-affected area of Turkey in the provinces of Malatya, Kahramanmaraş, Adiyaman, Gaziantep, Hatay, and Osmaniye as well as the affected areas of northwestern Syria, including Idlib.

Surviving families have lost their homes, their clothing, their food, and places to keep warm from the cold. Medical care and medicines are difficult to access.

Please give to our Turkey and Syria Earthquake Emergency appeal and help us support more people affected today.
