Türkiye / Syria
On the morning of February 6, a 7.9 magnitude earthquake struck the border region of Türkiye and Syria, followed the same day by another 7.5 magnitude earthquake. According to current information, more than 10,000 people have already died and another 49,000 are injured. The search for survivors is still ongoing.
In the affected region, there are millions of refugees from Syria who were already living in catastrophic conditions before the earthquake. In addition, temperatures are currently around freezing point, and there is snow in many regions. Aftershocks repeatedly shake the region. Survivors are therefore forced to stay in the cold outdoors; since their houses have been destroyed or are in danger of collapsing.
Local help is urgently needed: Thousands of buildings collapsed and important infrastructure, such as hospitals, was destroyed. In addition to medical help, relief supplies such as food or blankets are also needed.
Even if we are not normally active in the region, our network with Visions for Children e.V. gives us the opportunity to implement humanitarian emergency aid. We are currently in constant contact with local organizations about what they need in order to use your donations as quickly as possible with the greatest possible impact.
Of course we will keep you up to date on how exactly the donations can be used on site. Time is running out – quick and uncomplicated help for those affected is now saving lives. Let’s stand together to help the survivors!
